ADAPPT, a residential reentry center in Reading, Pennsylvania, hosted an open house on May 25, welcoming guests from the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, Bureau of Community Corrections, the Reading City Police Department and various community partners.
Held onsite at ADAPPT (which stands for Alcohol & Drug Addiction Parole & Probation Treatment), facility staff welcomed guests for a luncheon and meeting. Attendees discussed their common mission to provide reentrants with the best possible options to reintegrate into the community and become productive citizens.
“We were proud to host the open house, bringing our partners together in a shared mission of successful reentry,” Mike Critchosin, director of ADAPPT, said. “It was a great event that was well-received and an opportunity to reinforce good relationships within the community.”
Daniel McIntyre, director of the Pennsylvania Bureau of Community Corrections, also addressed the crowd to emphasize the importance of community partnership in helping individuals get their lives back on track. During the event, attendees enjoyed coming together to share in the important mission of working together to help the lives of the reentrants.
ADAPPT held the open house in honor of Reentry Month in May.
