Re-Con is a prisoner initiated
reintegration program created in 1999 that focuses on challenges facing
individuals with a life sentence. The group is made up of currently
incarcerated people, formerly
incarcerated people now serving their sentence on parole, and outside
volunteers. It is Re-Con’s main goal to establish links between prisoners and the community after a long period of incarceration and isolation. We aim to diminish the effects of institutionalization through personal development workshops and by sharing access to
outside community resources that may help reintegration upon release from prison.
