2022 Community Experience

Welcome H.O.M.E.!

OCTOBER 12-13, 2022  ll  Cost: Free to Ohioans :: $25 for Non-Ohioans  ll  Virtual & Regional Host Sites


Do you plan to better welcome those coming home after an incarceration experience?
Do you plan to work with those in your community to offer a better welcome home for your returning neighbors? 


You are not alone! Each year at the Community Experience, participants learn about emerging reentry trends and services that improve reentry service delivery and outcomes.  AND, participants connect with co-laborers in collaborative sessions to create more positive reentry opportunities and experiences within their local community and across Ohio.  This year is no exception!

You are not alone! Join us for the 2022 Welcome H.O.M.E. Community Experience either virtually or in person at one of our five regional site locations. This year's Community Experience is designed to provide connections and content focused on expanding options around H.O.M.E. (Housing Opportunities and Meaningful Employment).  Plenary Speakers and Panel Discussions offer timely perspectives and strategies for coalition building and effective community collaboration.  In addition, throughout the Community Experience, you will connect with regional co-laborers in collaborative sessions to develop more empathetic, local community welcome.

The 2022 Community Experience is designed for you to leave equipped and engaged for your next actionable steps.  We believe that with intentional strategic partners and transformative solutions, everybody can flourish in local community.

Remember to invite your co-laborers by sharing this flyer  

We look forward to being with you in October.
