The Community Reentry Expo is coming next Thursday April 26 at Hanes Hosiery Recreation Center in Winston-Salem from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. “The Community Reentry Expo is the first of its kind in Forsyth County,” said Reentry Specialist Tawanda McDonald.  “It will highlight 40 local community resources to that includes mental health, employment, housing medical screenings, expungement informational sessions and more.”  There will also be free Job Readiness Training Workshops for participants who sign in. Anyone affected by the justice system can attend. It’s open to the community, at no cost. I spoke with Tawanda McDonald on the phone, yet I could hear her passion and excitement. “Busta we are very excited and looking forward to seeing the community come out and come together for this event. It’s important to learn more about the services within the community that is available to those with justice history and/or successfully transitioning to the community.

There will be free food and drinks for everyone. “We will get you job ready on the spot. We’ll have barbers onsite and a clothing unit as well. Free parking will also available.”

The Forsyth County Reentry Council is made possible by the Criminal Justice Department of the Piedmont Triad Regional Counsel.  For more info, call (336) 724-3625.
