Rehabilitation in Prison & Reentry into Society

Jill McLellen from Alternative to Violence Project (AVP) and Carolyn Polikarpus from Transformative in-Prison Workgroup (TPW) talk with HMM’s Andrea Cunliffe about the work of their organizations and volunteers who bring education and rehabilitation to those in prison. They speak about the opportunities available for incarcerated people to transform their lives, the support given to those who participate in these programs, and about the transformative and healing power of community-based in-prison programs.

If interested in supporting people as they come home, suggested contacts for the Capital Regions are the Rensselaer County Taskforce, Albany County Taskforce and Schenectady County Taskforce.
