Dear JPC Friend,

You are an important member of our JPC family! We appreciate your support, patience and participation. Summer is finally here. Our office is partially open and all of our re-entry support services are continuing. Most meetings continue to take place over the phone. There are a limited number of face to face appointments that are available. You may call the office, 325-7727 to request a phone appointment or a face to face visit.

JPC is using the NYS Re-opening Template to take every precaution to open safely. We are following all the health and safety guidelines established by NYS State and the Monroe County Health Department for re-opening a business.

If you have an appointment for an office visit please do the following. When you arrive, call 325-7727, we accompany you into the office. You are required to: wear a mask (we have masks if you do not have one), complete a COVID 19 questionnaire, use hand sanitizer and practice social distancing.

Staff are assisting with:

· Food, shelter, housing referrals to homeless women and men and their families. Information, support and referrals “over-the-phone”. Information about free food distributions and food pantries is available.

· Increasing employability services: rap sheets and rap sheet review, collection of multiple documents needed to go with applications for certificates of rehabilitation. We will help prepare your application for certificate of rehabilitation or refer you to LawNY for sealing.

· Mentoring opportunities are available, meet over the phone with the JPC Mentor Coordinator to become a trained volunteer mentor. There is a critical need for mentors to “walk with” women and men while they are incarcerated in the Monroe County Jail and as they return to our community. If you have questions, call 325-7727 and ask for Sue.

· Encouragement and support for mothers exiting the Monroe County Jail thru weekly video conference support group, help with housing and reunification with children and family.
