Who We Serve

The program supports parolees between the ages of 18-26 (those at the highest risk of recidivism) who are returning home to Harlem from New York State correctional facilities. COS demonstrates commitment to supporting parolees’ families,  who often bear the enormous financial and social impact a prison sentence has on an entire household- particularly on children. Family and faith communities have a central role in Circles of Support, as they together can play a critical role in successful re-entry.

Circles of Support hosts quarterly family orientations, in which family members meet their loved one’s reentry team and are invited to partner with them in the reentry process.
