The conference "Coming Back: Transition From Prison" prompted a major undertaking by the Restorative Justice group at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Catskills to create a Resource List specifically designed for people released from prison or jail. Many in the helping professions have expressed a need for better sources of information to help this group make a successful reentry into our community. Support has come from the New York State Universalist Convention in the form of a grant for $1950.


The resource list has now been published under the title
Coming Back to Ulster County.
It includes information on such matters as housing, food and clothing, job seeking, legal issues, health services etc. Providers of services include public and private agencies, community groups, the faith community and others who are ready to offer help and support.

 

Print copies are provided free to ex-prisoners and to the agencies and community groups who help them. (Inquire at the office of the congregation.) In addition to this website, the book is also available online at www.reentry.net.
