May 2009 – Massachusetts DOC Agreement

JCP has arrived at an agreement with the Massachusetts Department of Correction to develop a pilot program at Pondville Correctional Center. This program begins with the creation of a Jericho Circle at the institution that will be paired with a Community Circle in the Boston area.  The Community Circle will enable JCP to develop a reentry initiative that supports men being released in the months ahead.  The community circle will have both a group and an individual mentoring component to assist men who have done work inside with their reintegration.  This collaborative efforts represents a turning point in closing the circle between the inside work and support services in the community.

Update: Our program at Pondville Correctional Center is no longer in operation.
