A Prison Tranformed into a ReEntry Hub

The Fulton Correctional Facility
The Bronx will soon be getting a dedicated reentry facility, fittingly housed on the site of a prison that was closed in 2011 after a marked decrease in New York's inmate population. The Osborne Association was bequeathed the Fulton Correctional Facility which will renovate to create a hub to serve the reentering population, with links to a variety of social services available in one location. Bronx Community Solutions staff members attended an event last week where the facility was unveiled by a number of Bronx political figures.

BCS remains connected to the reentering population through the Bronx Reentry Working Group, and runs a support group for reentering individuals on site.
