Tarrant County Reentry Coalition

A county-wide coalition has formed to enhance reentry collaboration, the Tarrant County Reentry Coalition. We are developing and executing a long-range strategy aimed at breaking the devastating cycle of recidivism in tangible ways. We meet the third Friday of each month, from 9:30 to 11:00, at Cornerstone Assistance Network in Fort Worth

Next Coalition Meeting: Friday, March 20th, 2015

Success Stories? Success Stories!

We all know them. In fact, in most areas of our life, we are surrounded by them. Who? People who have overcome a criminal background or a criminal record to become productive, well-adjusted members of society, families, and the job market. "Reentry success stories" are out there, but do we hear about them very often?

The general public seems to think that "a criminal is a criminal" and once someone has been to prison, their "life" is over and they fade into the shadows of society, never to amount to anything ever again. Even many of our leaders (think legislators, civic leaders, etc.) seem to believe this.

But the Tarrant County Reentry Coalition has good news -- and we are sharing it -- live, in person -- at our March meeting! We will be hosting a panel of formerly incarcerated leaders who are now shining examples of what happens when a community embraces its outcasts and second-class citizens. People who have been raised up from the depths and pulled from the shadows to demonstrate, time and again, that backgrounds can be overcome and we don't have to be defined by the worst thing we ever did!

Join us for a lively panel discussion -- with plenty of give and take and Q&A -- Friday, March 20, at 9:30 a.m. at Cornerstone Assistance Network's Community Room. There will be free coffee and cookies from the Bluebonnet Bakery for all who attend.
