Florida Faith-Based and Community-Based Advisory Council: Criminal Justice Workgroup

The Criminal Justice Workgroup, led by Dr. Gretchen Kerr, will focus on advancing efforts to enhance and improve programs and services through the identification of best practices and innovation on topics to include prevention, early intervention, diversion and re-entry or reintegration of adults and juveniles from jail and juvenile facilities, substance abuse, mental health, and persons with disabilities. The workgroup will bring together state agency liaisons and various faith-based and community-based organizations to identify needs, gaps in services, and propose solutions in order to facilitate a more collaborative and coordinated approach to working with state government agencies. In addition, the workgroup will coordinate with other Advisory Council workgroups and provide recommendations to refine, improve, and strengthen policies and legislation governing criminal justice issues and affecting faith-based and community-based organizations.
