Portland Social Service Agency Will Exhibit at Conference for Criminal Justice System Improvement in Oregon

PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Pathfinder Network announced today it will be exhibiting

at the Justice Reinvestment Summit February 13-15, 2019, at the Salem Convention Center (SCC) in Salem, Oregon. The conference, hosted by the State of Oregon Criminal Justice Commission, will feature presentations, panels and workshops led by local and national experts about successful and innovative strategies in criminal justice. The Pathfinder Network booth will showcase its numerous program and service offerings that support justice system-impacted individuals and families across the state of Oregon.

"The Pathfinder Network team is excited to join our criminal justice partners at this year's Justice Reinvestment Summit," said Leticia Longoria-Navarro, associate executive director at The Pathfinder Network. "We are looking forward to learning, sharing information, connecting with stakeholders and re-energizing our commitment to innovative rehabilitative and public safety strategies."

Since its founding in 1993, The Pathfinder Network has expanded from its initial work as a contractor with the Oregon Department of Corrections (ODOC) to a multifaceted agency offering evidence-based, trauma-responsive programs in both corrections and community settings. Corrections programs focused on rehabilitation and recidivism and offered through ODOC include parenting classes, cognitive-behavioral interventions for both general and segregation populations, gender-responsive programs for women, drug and alcohol treatment and trauma-coping skills groups.

At the Center for Family Success in East Multnomah County, The Pathfinder Network delivers no-cost, holistic, community-based services for systems-impacted adults and their children. Programs offered at the Center include parenting classes, early childhood home visiting, advocacy, youth mentoring and trauma support, trauma coping skills groups, adult peer mentoring, reentry support and family engagement activities. Collectively, the agency's programs have served more than 40,000 justice-involved individuals and their families.

An additional booth will feature information about Parenting Inside OutŪ (PIO), The Pathfinder Network's proprietary evidence-based parenting skills curriculum that addresses the unique challenges facing criminal-justice-involved parents and their children. As the highest-rated parenting program listed on the National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices, PIO is now in use in 32 states, Australia and Canada, including nine department of corrections and multiple community and jail-based programs. Visit the PIO booth at the Justice Reinvestment Summit for information on purchasing and implementing the curriculum.
