NCWorks Participates in Re-entry Simulation

NCWorks staff participated in a re-entry simulation on Friday, September 30th, which was held as part of Recovery Month awareness in partnership with Watauga County LEAD.  During the event participants experienced the first month of post-release life tasks that must be accomplished in order to avoid the risk of being re-arrested for non-compliance with the requirements of his or her supervised release.  As part of the event, expo tables from local agencies that work with people returning from incarceration were available, along with speaker Jeff Walker from Wilkes Recovery Revolution.  Staff felt the experience was valuable in assisting them in providing services to this population.
