The Harlem Parole Reentry Court and the Upper Manhattan Reentry Task Force’s Collaborative Case Management Program are designed to facilitate the transition from confinement to life in the community for individuals on parole returning to the neighborhoods of East and Central Harlem and to reduce reoffending and parole violations. The projects are a collaboration of The Division of Corrections and Community Supervision, the Department of Criminal Justice Services and the Center for Court Innovation. The programs rely upon the combination of comprehensive pre-release assessments, intensive case management, linkages to on-site and community-based social services, judicial monitoring, parole supervision, and a multi-disciplinary team approach to confront the most critical issues such as criminal thinking, familial disruption, substance abuse and unemployment that, if left unaddressed, often lead to reoffending behavior.
