DOC helps ex-cons work back into society

Dec 12, 2011

The Wyoming Department of Corrections is
fostering multi-agency think tanks to ensure former inmates can
access social services, treatment and other resources on the
outside.
     Agency re-entry program manager Christy Hahn says the department
is trying to find out what resources aren't being used or are being
overused.
     In early November, a statewide re-entry task force including
members of 14 state, county and city agencies met for their first
quarterly meetings in Cheyenne.
     Hahn says that the group includes the directors or
deputy directors of each department or private agency.
     The task force plans to address issues such as housing,
employment and education and treatment.
