Reentry Initiatives at the Harlem Community Justice Center

The Harlem Community Justice Centers two reentry projects, The Upper Manhattan Reentry Task Force, and the Harlem Parole Reentry Court, seek to improve public safety in Upper Manhattan by addressing the stabilization and crimonogenic needs of individuals coming home from prison, and by altering community responses that inhibit the successful reentry of formerly incarcerated individuals. In cooperation with the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services and the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, the Reentry Task Force and Reentry Court help parolees returning to the Harlem area make the transition from life in prison to responsible citizenship, making Upper Manhattan a safer, and more welcoming, place for all Harlem residents.
