DESTA’s Justice Program addresses the unique needs of incarcerated and formerly incarcerated members of our community. We evaluate their needs and support their reintegration through informal counselling, advocacy, and accompaniment.
Through our established partnerships, DESTA links them to job skills programs, legal-aid clinics, halfway houses and other useful programs and services. Participants can also access the resources of:
DESTA’s LionWolf School.
DESTA’s many Mental Health and Personal Development programs.
For those still in prison, phone counselling sessions by collect-call and community visits to Cowansville Institution help break the isolation and provide support.
