IN HONOR OF OUR FALLEN DALLAS POLICE OFFICERS
AND THEIR FAMILIES
We, at Unlocking DOORS, mourn the loss of our fallen Dallas police officers due to last night's tragedy. They put their lives on the line for us every day to promote and ensure our safety; not to mention our freedoms. Our hearts and prayers are with the families of those who lost their lives, as well as those who were injured and the entire Dallas police/law enforcement community. We support you and are here to assist in anyway.
We so appreciate Governor Abbott ordering that all Texas flags across the state be lowered to half-staff in honor of the Dallas police shooting victims on July 8th, 2016 through July 12, 2016.
Lest we never forget!!!!!

UNLOCKING DOORS 2016 TEXAS REENTRY
SYMPOSIUM A HUGE SUCCESS!
Monday, April 25th was a great day in Downtown Dallas as 300 criminal
justice professionals, service providers, returned citizens
and other interested individuals from across the State of Texas gathered to kick-off National
Reentry Week at the historic Belo Mansion
Unlocking DOORS Texas Reentry Network's
2016 Texas Reentry Symposium!
After hearing about the great reentry efforts occurring within the Texas
Prison and Parole Systems (TDCJ), attendees,
all passionate about reducing recidivism (re-offending) in our Texas communities, were educated as to the true mission and purpose of the:
UNLOCKING DOORS TEXAS REENTRY NETWORK
TO BUILD AND ROUTINIZE THE COMMUNITY-BASED REENTRY
PLATFORM IN TEXAS
that will provide for a smooth and seamless
transition for all of those with
criminal backgrounds - whether coming
directly from incarceration (TDCJ, BOP, etc.)
OR already residing
within the community (under supervision or not)
Attendees were encouraged to join the already 128 plus Partners/Providers
Unlocking DOORS Network so as to continue the creation of the unique
and nationally-unduplicated Unlocking DOORS' cohesive, coordinated and collaborative
"Reentry Brokerage/Predictive Trends Model"
