Beth Hines is the new executive director of Hartford's Community Partners in Action.

Community Partners in Action (CPA), a Hartford nonprofit focused on behavioral change and criminal justice reform, has tapped its former chief operating officer as executive director.

CPA on Monday afternoon announced Beth Hines as its new executive director, replacing Maureen Price-Boreland, who was selected by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to be a Superior Court judge.

The Hartford nonprofit conducted a six-month national search before landing on Hines, who has spent 27 years at CPA, a 143-year-old social-services agency.

Hines, a Bristol native, began her professional career as a job developer at CPA immediately after graduating from UConn in 1991. She was promoted to several positions, including program coordinator, program manager, and program operations director for 13 years. She most recently served as COO.

CPA said she has decades worth of prison reform experience in addition to relationships with the Connecticut Department of Corrections, the Judicial Branch's Court Support Services Division and other agencies.

Hines currently serves as a member of Gov-elect Ned Lamont's transition team for human services and is chair of the Greater Waterbury Reentry Council. She also serves with the Connecticut Reentry Housing Task Force, the Statewide Reentry Collaborative, and the Connecticut Reentry Strategy initiative.

Founded in 1875, the organization said it serves more than 6,000 adults and youth annually through six programs promoting "recovery, restoration and responsibility."

CPA helped plan a recently opened re-entry center at Hartford City Hall through a $450,000 grant provided by the Hartford Foundation.
