The Connecticut reentry program and assistance page is a big work in progress. We try to keep our eyes out for more programs to add to the page. If your Connecticut reentry program is not listed here, please contact us if you would like it to be. Your program will be reviewed as soon as possible once we receive it. If we feel that it is a good addition to our Connecticut reentry programs page, we will add it.
Also, please contact us if there are any issues with a Connecticut reentry program that is listed here. We do try to keep this page as up to date as possible, but we’re not perfect. Sometimes we do miss things, and appreciate them being pointed out to us. We will fix issues as soon as we find them or they are brought to our attention.
If you are looking for information on voting with a felony in Connecticut, please look on our Voting Rights page. That page has a list of all 50 states’ laws regarding ex-offender voting rights.[line]
