Description

Community Voices is a part of The Satcher Health Leadership Institute and focuses on healthcare for returning citizens. They operate three primary programs to support justice involved individuals: MILA Fatherhood and Family Reunification, PATH (Preparing Adolescents to be Tomorrow’s Heroes), and Inside/Out. Based in 12 Mississippi counties, the MILA Support Program was developed to improve outcomes for the kids of formerly incarcerated fathers in Mississippi by offering resources for employment, education, legal, housing and health to foster stability and reduce the likelihood of reoffense while also working with young people to increase school attendance and coping strategies. The PATH program is designed to assist at-risk youth and improve their employability by offering social support through peer and community based mentors, mobilizing service based organizations and resources, and promoting cross system partnership among youth, parents and caregivers, and their community. Inside/Out seeks to be an advocate in helping systems in care coordination and effective reintegration supports. Through community transition planning, Community Voices hopes to contributes to fewer re-arrests among returning citizens.
