CARE Program

Purpose - Supports Transitioning Into Communities
The Comprehensive Adult Re-Entry (CARE) Program supports citizens transitioning from incarceration back into their communities. The program features a one-year subsidized housing contract along with a scaffolding of trauma-informed, empowering support to help each participant achieve independence, find employment, and sign their own lease by the end of the program. CARE brings together the strands of need identified in the research and the calls to action from our own communities, providing stable housing and an array of personal growth, employment, and social services supports designed to empower each of our participants to achieve independence and personal success, thereby strengthening not only their own well-being, but the well-being of their families and communities as well. The entire process comes together to create an evidence-based transition from incarceration in a jail or prison to becoming an independent member of the Hartford/ Manchester communities.
