THEI is constantly adapting to the needs of our students in prison and our alumni who have returned home, and we are excited to share some new or up-and-coming SSRS projects we’ve been working on this year:
Moving Forward Guide
In the summer of 2020 THEI, in partnership with Memphis Interfaith Coalition for Action and Hope (MICAH) and Education Justice Project (EJP), has launched an exciting project to create the most extensive re-entry resource guide that the state of Tennessee has ever had. The Tennessee Moving Forward guide will outline — through written narrative and a detailed user-friendly directory — resources for all essential needs for people transitioning beyond incarceration across all regions in Tennessee, including resources for housing, health and mental-health services, food security, employment and career development, higher education, legal and advocacy support, and information about re-entry during COVID-19. The guide will live online, but also as a booklet that will be distributed in prisons across the state, both directly to individuals and also through programs and agencies.
