Reconnecting Reentry Collaboration
October 8th 2020
Reconnecting Reentry joins forces with UNC Asheville's Prison Education Program which offers courses and other learning opportunities to a small group of students incarcerated at the Avery-Mitchell Correctional Institute. Reconnecting will offer laptops to anyone who is released and has been a part of this program in efforts to continue their education and further their reentry success. We are very excited to see what other collaborations might unfold from this so stay tuned! More will be revealed!
Reconnecting has now given out 15 laptops!! That is 15 people who will now be able to return to school, attend online meetings, look for employment and stay connected! Having access to these things is so important for a successful return to the community from incarceration. Thank you Asheville for supporting second chances and allowing our community to support connection. We are blessed!
