The Reentry Welcome Center is open to anyone who is formerly incarcerated or who has a family member or friend who has been formerly incarcerated and is seeking basic information on programs and resources. A priority is to provide navigation services for individuals who have recently been released to the community 'end of sentence' (EOS) within the last 90 days.  EOS means the individual is not on Parole and/or Probation upon release.

Each participant of the Reentry Welcome Center will be treated with respect and dignity. When an individual is dropped off to the Center by the Department of Correction (CT DOC), they will receive a special orientation and brief assessment to triage their needs and determine next steps.  Some individuals may need to be referred out to additional community providers for specialized services and supports.

Reentry and Employment Services are specifically for people returning to the Hartford area after a prison stay.

These programs offer basic needs assistance, stabilizing support, 'employability' skills, job hunting preparation and career certification training.
