The ARC program

Programs

The ARC program (Advocate, Rehabilitate and Connect): This program is borne out of the need to improve/decongest/reduce the recidivism rate in our correctional facilities. The advocacy piece is to address the human rights issues in correctional facilities. Rehabilitation has to do with helping the inmates to address mental, physical, emotional and health issues associated with being incarcerated as well as transition issues after being released from a correctional facility. The Connect aspect of the program is connecting the inmates with resources that will help them adjust to their environment after leaving the facility.
