The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce the 2nd annual: Re-entry Fair!
This event will occur March 27th -29th in the Humboldt County Correctional Facility in Eureka. This event takes place in conjunction with the Criminal Justice Dialogue, a week-long HSU conference committed to addressing the myriad of difficulties surrounding the reintegration of our incarcerated community. This conference will be held March 20th-24th at Humboldt State University’s Native Forum from 6-8pm, and is open to the community.
The Re-entry Fair is a three day event committed to supporting reentry concerns encountered by the inmates of the Humboldt County Correctional Facility. The first day of the event will focus on job etiquette. Our staff and HSU volunteers will spend the day engaging inmates in techniques to promote successful employment upon release. On March 28th, we have several employers confirmed to come into the correctional facility and talk with inmates about employment opportunities upon release.
The final day, March 29th, is a community resource day. There will be community organizations ranging from housing, treatment programs, child welfare services, tribal services, education, AOD, and more to meet with inmates and share materials.
Employers and program representatives will have the opportunity to meet directly with inmates and provide them with informational materials on their services. This type of event is the 2nd for the Humboldt County Correctional Facility. The Sheriff’s Office goal is to reduce recidivism within our community, and to prepare the individuals leaving our facility for success upon release. We are in a pivotal time for developing reentry services, and we are excited to launch continued efforts to ensure a well-planned re-entry for all.
