Houston, Texas will focus on re-entry of veterans and formerly incarcerated individuals. Research has found an association between homelessness, veterans, and incarceration rates. Join us as we dialogue about:
- The needs of the veteran and homeless population
- Effective re-entry programming
- Vocational training
- Affordable housing
- And more...
We are committed to improving education, reducing incarceration, supporting our returning veterans, and providing a pathway to success for students, veterans, and those re-entering civilian life.
