Hour Children’s Centers of Bedford Hills and Taconic Correctional Facilities

Believing that a strong family connection maximizes a child’s stability and a woman’s chances of success upon reentry, these centers work to nurture happy, healthy and caring relationships between incarcerated mothers and their children.

Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison

Hudson Link was founded in 1998, at a time where New York state and federal funding for college education in prisons ceased. It’s grown to provide superior academic programs, focused transitional services, and the philosophy that alumni should “pay-it-forward” in their communities. Currently, Hudson Link serves five facilities in New York State including:  Sing Sing Correctional Facility, Sullivan Correctional Facility, Fishkill Correctional Facility, Greene Correctional Facility and Taconic Women’s Correctional Facility.
