Inquiry about California prison program

  • Subject: [cg] Inquiry about California prison program

As former Director of Wasatch Community Gardens, I attended an ACGA
conference in Denver in 1992 and saw a presentation involving a transitional
live/work program for recently released inmates. The program centered around
a blighted inner city neighborhood that was essentially boarded up and
abandoned. Parolees were given the task of rehabilitating an entire
street/block of buildings and creating residential, commercial and retail
space. Many started small businesses or restaurants as part of the program's
entrepreneurial component, and they lived in the residential component.

Does anyone have more information about this type of program?

I work on affordable housing issues in Idaho now and routinely get inquiries
from folks in/exiting the prison system who need housing and/or employment.
