The fourth annual All-Sites Summit will highlight critical issues for local Adult Redeploy Illinois (ARI) sites.
The summit will include panel presentations, break-out sessions on best practices from the field, technical training on data and grants, updates from ARI sites, and time for networking.
Those expected to attend are a spectrum of ARI site stakeholders including but not limited to judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, treatment providers, probation staff and supervisors, program coordinators, and researchers. In the past, some ARI sites have been able to send full teams while other sites send 1-3 program representatives. Summit content is structured for relevancy to a broad group of stakeholders. In addition to current ARI program representation, planning grantees are welcome and have previously benefited from exposure to current ARI programs and systemwide training.
Adult Redeploy Illinois is a state funding and technical assistance program that supports the diversion of non-violent offenders from prison to more effective and less expensive community-based supervision and services.
ARI sites use grant funds to design and implement local programs that address offenders' risks and needs and leverage their assets (family support, employment) to improve public safety and offender outcomes. ARI has grown from five initial pilot sites in early 2011, to the current 18 sites implementing 19 programs covering 34 Illinois counties (as of January 2014).
Based on 2013 Summit feedback, the 2014 ARI All-Sites Summit will highlight critical issues including housing, employment, and other topics at the intersection of behavioral health and criminal justice. The Summit will also include break-out sessions highlighting best practices from the field and technical training on data and grants.
