The Queens County Reentry Task Force partners with The Department of Corrections and Community Supervision in order to provide assistance for individuals who have recently been released from incarceration. Individual service plans made in collaboration with partner organizations helps reintegrate individuals into their communities.
The goal of The Queens County Reentry Task Force is to reduce recidivism by coordinating and strengthening community supports in response to individuals transitioning from incarceration back into the community.
Task Forces are located in New York City and upstate counties. The Task Forces are designed to help individuals who are returning to their communities after release from state prison. Two state agencies, The Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) and Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS), collaborate to manage these Task Forces. Each Task Force works with DCJS, DOCCS, county and community agencies, and human service providers to help eligible individuals enroll in programs and services that meet their needs when returning to the community.
The Queens County Task Force is part of a larger statewide task force based on the National Institute for Corrections Transition from Prison to Community Initiative (TCPI). Funding for The Queens County Reentry Task Force is provided by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS).
