New York Reentry Housing Workgroup

Greenhope Services for Women actively participates in the New York Reentry Housing Workgroup, which is made up of 16 reentry housing and service providers and convened by CSH. This month, the Workgroup released policy recommendations to strengthen recent efforts by the State and City to improve access to housing for people with criminal justice backgrounds.

Sister Mary Nerney

The Reentry Workgroup included organizations with specific expertise in criminal justice and related housing issues including: The Bridge, The Bronx Defenders, Brooklyn Community Housing and Services, CASES, the Community Service Society of New York, CSH, The Fortune Society, From Punishment to Public Health, Greenhope Services for Women, Hour Children, Housing Plus Solutions, Legal Action Center, MFY Legal Services, Neighbors Together, The Osborne Association, Prisoner Reentry Institute, John Jay College of Criminal Justice and Providence House.

We hope you will support and share these recommendations, especially with your local and state leaders, so that thousands of New Yorkers exiting our jails and prisons will find stable housing, avoid re-incarceration, and lead productive lives in our communities.
