The New Jersey Department of Corrections has renewed Education & Health Centers of America's Residential Reentry Programs in New Jersey after a competitive bidding process that took place earlier this year.
Contracts were awarded to Talbot Hall in Kearny, The Albert M. "Bo" Robinson Assessment and Treatment Center in Trenton and Tully House and The Harbor in Newark. Talbot Hall and Bo Robinson serve as New Jersey's two assessment centers, where residents are provided a risk needs assessment before placement into a community-based work release program. Education & Health Centers of America, Inc. in conjunction with its subcontractor, Community Education Centers, Inc. provides therapeutic correctional services with an empirically documented record of reducing recidivism at the programs that it operates.
