ANNOTATION: Collaboration between faith-based organizations, community organizations, and corrections has proven to be a cost-effective way to meet agency needs and bring much needed services to offenders. This unique partnership also helps to promote social justice, reduce recidivism, and increase public safety. This 3-hour program examines the myths, realities, boundaries, and benefits of this collaboration while providing information to help correctional leaders achieve new and more successful re-entry initiatives by creating service partnerships between faith-based and community organizations and corrections. Discussion topics include: leveraging money through partnerships; dispelling the myths surrounding a partnership between faith-based and community organizations and corrections; creating a solution-based partnership that helps to improves lives and fosters community safety; navigating the request for proposal (RFP) process and associated legal terms; and developing a “4th hour” action plan to integrate and expand upon the information presented.
