New Life Ministry of Southeastern CT

Mission:

The mission of New Life is to reduce recidivism of women released from York Prison


Objective:

The primary goal of New Life is the reduction in the Connecticut recidivism rate and the communal costs of incarceration. Fifty to sixty percent of the inmates released into the community will return to prison unless they have access most importantly to housing, and  to material and personal support.

A secondary goal of New Life is to help recently released female inmates function independently and successfully in the community, This assists them to make the transition from incarceration to community membership.

We provide two apartments in the New London area where there are opportunities for the women to work and have access to those resources that will prevent recurring substance abuse.
