Topics of the Fredona study are: “Re-entry: Housing and Employment Issues;” “Planning for the Future? Leaving Correctional Facilities as Emerging Adults;” “What Happened Before Incarceration? Understanding the Role of Pre/Interventions for Emerging Adults” and “Negative Impacts of Prisoner code Among Emerging Adults.”
