The Vera Institute's Family Justice Program will begin work with the Montgomery County Department of Correction and Rehabilitation to examine "how families can improve the likelihood a person will not return to criminal activity after release from jail." Vera staff will, among other things, find the right tools and trainings to help jail staff involve families in the reentry process to try to reduce the chances that a person returns to jail.
