This webinar will discuss how relying only on recidivism to measure reentry program or participant success only tells part of the story. The webinar will support reentry program staff and evaluators in identifying the best outcomes to measure and will review strategies and resources for capturing those outcomes. It will also showcase one Second Chance Act grantee's efforts to measure program outcomes using a broad set of measures.
