About the Program

Returning home from an incarceration can be a challenging process. If you have been recently incarcerated, be sure to stop by the Long Branch Free Public Library for personal sessions with a Social worker, who will take you step-by-step through the process of re-entry.

Throughout these sessions, you get to decide how to make your plan and we are here to help you each step of the way.

We understand that everyone deserves a second chance and are happy to provide you with support.
