The Luzerne County Reentry Service Center, operated by GEO Reentry Services, recently celebrated its five-year anniversary in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, in an event once again attended by the Wilkes-Barre Time Leader, which recently featured an in-depth look at the center and what it offers.
The celebration was attended by several community officials, including County Correctional Services Division Head J. Allen Nesbitt who told the paper, “We’re looking forward to hopefully another five years. The number of people we’ve been able to send to the program has been increasing, and ideally it will continue rising and even double.”
The Luzerne County RSC provides evidence-based reentry programming for offenders at risk of recidivating that focuses on behavioral change and empowering participants to take charge of their lives and actions to become productive members of their communities.
