For those recently released from incarceration, finding supports for successful re-entry into the community can be a challenge. United Way 2-1-1 has two resources to assist these individuals and their families. The new Greater Hartford Re-Entry Services Directory includes information on food assistance, job training programs, transportation, health care resources and much more for nine towns in the Hartford area. For those outside of the greater Hartford area, 2-1-1 maintains an online Re-Entry Search Engine with statewide resources.
United Way 2-1-1 is a one-stop connection to local services, from utility assistance, food, housing, child care, after school programs, elder care, crisis intervention and much more. Just dial 2-1-1 (from out of state 800-203-1234) or visit them at 211ct.org.
