The Broome County ABLE Re-entry Program works with formerly incarcerated men and women as they return home to our community from NYS Correctional Facilities. We assist participants in meeting the challenges they face, with the ultimate goals of enhancing public safety, reducing recidivism, and rebuilding lives and community.
Over the past three years, Broome County’s ABLE Re-entry Program has been rated #1 in NYS, by the Division of Criminal Justice Services, by consistently demonstrating an 88% success rate – reducing the number of individuals who return to jail or prison.
The Cornerstone Group is an ecumenical faith association currently working with the NYS Department of Corrections and Community Supervision; Broome County ABLE Re-entry Program; and the Broome County Council of Churches to become a NYS certified training partner. This will allow trained mentors to enter NYS correctional facilities to work one-on-one with men and women prior to and after their release.
The training course is offered by the NYS Department of Corrections and Community Supervision Volunteer Services Department:
We are pleased to invite you to attend this amazing, fast-paced, interactive 2 days (Saturday, October 25th & Saturday, November 1st from 9am to 5pm) of learning with lots of invaluable “stuff”!
