In Billerica, a cell block for young men holds promise

We're pleased to partner with Middlesex Sheriff's Office and Vera Institute of Justice on a young adult unit in the Middlesex House of Correction. 

"The Middlesex Jail and House of Correction will become one of the first in the nation to create a dedicated, service-rich cell block for young men.

Inmates, ages 18 to 24, will gather in peace circles to talk through conflict. They’ll learn how to budget for rent and transportation. And they’ll get the chance to hold their children during visiting hours."
