Sign-on Letter to City Officials regarding DC Men’s Halfway House

The ReThink Justice Pathways to Reentry Committee send a sign-on letter to Mayor Bowser and Councilmember Charles Allen, Chair of the Council’s Judiciary Committee to bring to their attention an urgent situation regarding the District’s only halfway house for men. The letters states that the signees believe that this DC-based halfway house is in danger of being closed, with no replacement, by the federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP).

The city officials were asked “to provide the leadership that is necessary to to prevent the loss of a professionally-run, locally-based halfway house serving individuals returning from the BOP.”

The purpose of the ReThink Justice Pathways to Reentry Committee is:

To improve reentry success and promote public safety in the District of Columbia, the Pathways to Reentry Committee advocates for legislation, engages the community, and builds and strengthens relationships with reentry services to enhance a more informed and responsive community for men and women who are or were incarcerated at the DC Jail, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and local halfway houses.
