As part of the annual Dismas Charities Leadership Conference, management staff from every facility took part in a Reentry Simulation. Its purpose was to raise awareness and understanding of the challenges a resident faces upon release. Gathering at the St. Ann Campus, each staffer faced hurdles associated with employment, obtaining identification, urinalysis, paying fines and child support, and getting medications filled. Many failed and faced the consequence of returning to jail. The event was organized by Regional Vice President Faith Good and Sioux City Director Robyn Deacon who held a similar exercise at her facility earlier this year.
