An event to help people get back on their feet after incarceration is scheduled for Wednesday in Meridian.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced it will host a re-entry services fair at the Velma Young Community Center on Aug. 14, from 1 - 4 p.m. at 2400 16th Avenue, in Meridian.
“Most prisoners today will one day be released back into our communities. We as a people must do all that we can to empower these individuals with the tools they need to be law-abiding and productive citizens,” said U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst in a news release.
Agencies will provide resources on housing, education, employment, legal information, and personal identification documents.
