Reentry Welcome Center reopens at new location in Hartford

Contributed Hartford's Reentry Welcome Center at 716 Windsor St.

Hartford's Reentry Welcome Center has a new home where it plans to offer expanded services for people who have recently been released from incarceration.

On Friday, Community Partners in Action (CPA) and the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving joined city, state and federal officials to formally reopen the Reentry Welcome Center at its new location, 716 Windsor St.

The center, which first opened by the city and CPA in 2018 in City Hall, has assisted more than 1,000 people returning to society after incarceration. In addition to a new home, the center’s expansion will allow it to help more people — including those on probation and parole — and add programming for pre-release services, according to information from the Hartford Foundation.

The center offers case management support for recently released prisoners and helps them find employment, housing and healthcare as they transition. The new location, with meeting rooms and a computer lab, has more space for CPA partners to provide programming on-site.

The new expanded programming is partially funded by a three-year, $375,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, a $900,000 allocation split evenly between three years from Hartford’s American Rescue Plan Funds, and money from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
