Hartford Foundation for Public Giving

Reentry Welcome Center

The Hartford Foundation awarded a three-year, $450,000 grant to Community Partners in Action, working with the City of Hartford and other partners, to establish a one-stop Reentry Welcome Center for returning citizens in the City of Hartford.

The Reentry Center serves approximately 150 returning women and men each year. These citizens are able to access support and services offered by a variety of community organizations from basic needs like food and clothing to services like substance abuse treatment, job training and educational opportunities. The Center also serves as a data collection hub to track referral outcomes across community partners.
