Doing What’s Needed

2020- Staff from John Howard Society, Elizabeth Fry Society and Coverdale Courtwork Society came together to operate "JEC" and emergency decarceration shelter for people exiting incarceration during COVID-19. This award winning project saw hundreds released from jails back to community with wrap-around support services.
