At its best, the process of community assessment is both an effective community organizing tool and also a process for creating concrete change. Many interagency teams are eager to analyze practices and case files together, but some communities are challenged when it comes to committing to change and implementing those changes. Preparing for implementation from the beginning stages of a community assessment can pave the way for success in implementing changes the assessment recommends. Join us for an insightful discussion to learn about key strategies for successful implementation of recommendations and findings.

|PART 1 of a 2 part series:
Women are among the fastest growing criminal justice population. Currently, there are over one million adult women involved in the criminal justice system. The reasons for their involvement are as varied as their pathways into and contact with the system. A consistent thread throughout the lives of justice-involved women is trauma resulting from domestic, sexual or other types of violence. Throughout their lives, justice-involved women may encounter various criminal justice practitioners and service providers charged with assisting them prior to, during, or after incarceration. It is critical to understand that women have life circumstances that are unique to their gender that require specific interventions. Obtaining a better understanding of what contributes to their incarceration is at the core of helping them transition back to their communities, reducing recidivism, and achieving improved outcomes.
