The Problem

Unprecedented numbers of people are involved in the criminal justice system. There are over 12,000 ex-offenders released from prison each year in Connecticut. Most of them face challenges managing the most basic ingredients for successful reintegration into society. This includes finding employment and housing, reconnecting with their families and communities, and accessing substance abuse and behavioral health services.
