The Slow Shift back to In-person

During the pandemic, many facilities were not allowing external programming and/or serving less individuals due to social distancing requirements.  All 6 weekly in-person classes in the 3 facilities ran by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office in Duval County were put on pause.  In order to continue serving individuals involved in the carceral system, we began court-ordered virtual classes serving individuals who are involved in the carceral system through Veteran Court, Mental Health Court and Drug Court. In addition, we have begun in-person classes for individuals at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Seminole County and have weekly consistent classes.

Our Program Directors are in constant communication with the administration and judicial court system in Duval County and we will resume classes as soon as it is safe to do so.  Also, to note, we are in conversation with the court system in Tampa Bay and are working on securing a partnership to serve individuals court-involved in the Tampa Bay area.  We are grateful for your continued support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and will keep you updated as we shift back to in-person in Duval County correctional facilities and grow our programming across the state of Florida.
