Healing Communities is a training that was developed in response to the effects of the ‘drug war’ and mass incarceration among urban families and communities in cities across the country with the understanding that faith communities play an essential role. From this training, you will learn how to:

• walk with the returning citizens (connect returning citizens to resources that will help set attainable goals)
• help them connect with their faith (provide spiritual support)
• open their hearts to them (foster positive relationships)
• embrace them (extend open and affirming fellowship)
• provide understanding (collaboration with family and friends to rebuild relationships)
• Advocate for political change on a local, state, and federal level
