New London

NEW LONDON, Conn. (WTNH)–The city of New London is partnering with the Department of Corrections to connect former inmates with stable housing.

The initiative is part of an effort to keep people from going back to prison. The Department of Corrections will let the city know when inmates with strong New London ties are getting out.Related Content:Connecticut awarding $31 million for affordable housing

The city will also be able to contact them while they are in custody. Experts say that early action makes inmates more likely to take advantage of available programs, whether they are housing, food, or healthcare.Related Content: Surge in violence prompts meeting of neighbors in New London
