First Portal Installed in a U.S. Prison Scheduled to Open in CT this Fall
Family ReEntry and Shared Studios introduced the Prison Portal Project at Governor Malloy's Reimagining Justice Conference, June 14th
Working in partnership with the State of Connecticut Department of Corrections and the City of Bridgeport Mayor's Initiative for Reentry Affairs, Portals will be installed this fall linking the nation's first portal to be placed within the confines of a correctional facility and a second portal anticipated to open in downtown Bridgeport. This will allow families to directly communicate with their loved ones in prison in an immersive environment "as if they were in the same room..."

The Problem
Even as the Connecticut government is closing prisons and reducing the prison population to the lowest level since the 1970s - a good thing - the fiscal crisis has caused it to terminate the funding for and close EVERY community-based nonresidential prisoner reentry behavioral health program in the state. (Family ReEntry's residential and intervention programs were unaffected.) This means thousands of people, many or most of them people of color, will be released from jails and prisons this year without access to mental health services, substance abuse counseling, life skills training, family therapy, housing opportunities, education, or even minimum wage jobs. Without this critical support, research shows that most will likely recidivate and will return to prison in record numbers...but not before they re-engage in the very behavior for which they were incarcerated in the first place. A very bad thing - for everyone.
