Inmates graduate from RochesterWorks! program

Local News

Thirteen inmates graduated from the Monroe Correctional Facility graduated Tuesday from the RochesterWorks! Reentry Connections program.

The program, funded by a $500,000 grant from the Department of Labor’s LEAP program allows inmates to learn skills to have a smoother transition back into the community.

This first group of inmates began instruction in February.

“It’s a great program,” said Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn. “It’s with RochesterWorks! and we work in conjunction with them to give an opportunity for the inmates currently housed in our facility to be able to reenter back into the community more easily.”

This program will serve over 100 inmates over the next two years.
