New DA praises ex-offenders at Reentry Graduation

Yesterday, the Harlem Community Justice Center honored sixteen parolees in a graduation ceremony which recognized their achievement in completing the Parole Reentry Court Program, the only such program in New York. During the six months parolees attend the program, they receive extensive supervision and services from dedicated parole staff, HCJC staff, and an administrative law judge. Staff from the Justice Center, the Department of Parole, and the Manhattan District Attorney, Cy Vance, honored graduates last night with certificates and words of support and encouragement. The graduates spoke movingly about their achievements, the struggles they have experienced in their reentry, and their hopes for the future.
