Issue Areas

There are certain multidimensional issues of on-going concern for the reentry population. The A/TCRRT Planning Council attempts to integrate its work in these key issue areas by establishing formal partnerships with existing committees, work groups, and coalitions that have similar or overlapping goals. This results in more efficient use of existing community resources, less duplication of effort, and promotes opportunities for dialogue and the sharing of accurate data. These issue areas are:

Sherry Blyth, Austin Travis County Integral Care
Danny Smith, Travis County Sheriff’s Office
