TALLAHASSEE– The Florida Department of Corrections Office of Community Corrections will join the Roundtable of St. Lucie County, the Department of Juvenile Justice, the City of Fort Pierce, the United States Attorney’s Office and the South Florida Reentry Task Force to host St. Lucie County’s first Re-Entry Center Hub on Thursday, April 9, 2015.

“Providing offenders with the resources they need to successfully re-enter society and become contributing members of Florida’s communities is critical to reducing recidivism and continuing Florida’s 43 year crime low,” said Secretary Julie Jones. “I am proud of the good work our Correctional Probation Officers do to keep Florida safe and create positive opportunities for those in need of a fresh start.”

The South Florida Reentry Center Hub is a traveling one-stop service center for formerly incarcerated individuals and their families. The event is an opportunity for returning citizens who are currently on supervision with the Department of Corrections or the Department of Juvenile Justice to learn about and access resources to help them become productive members of society.
