Many organizations in East and Central Harlem, Washington Heights, and Inwood have been working to help reentrants adjust to life outside of prison for many years.

Re-thinking Reentry is a new blog that chronicles the way that city and state agencies, community-based entities, and academic partners are enhancing the process of return from prison to community in Upper Manhattan. This blog will serve as a portal for information on what the Upper Manhattan Reentry Task Force and its partner organizations are doing to reduce recidivism and to enhance public safety. It will also be a clearinghouse for interesting articles, ideas, or developments in the field more broadly. If we think it will be interesting or useful, we're putting it up!

Please feel free to comment on the articles posted, to share your own success stories, or to reach out for assistance on thorny problems. And check back often for our frequent updates.
