What: Community Education Centers, Inc. (CEC) in conjunction with the Philadelphia Prison System (PPS) proudly opens the doors of Hoffman Hall, a 400-bed capacity residential reentry center, which uses tested cognitive behavioral reentry treatment to help offenders change their criminal thinking and behaviors. This facility will play an instrumental role in reducing recidivism for the City of Philadelphia. Hoffman Hall addresses the reentry needs of each individual offender and utilizes CEC's continuum of care model that is proven to reduce recidivism. The treatment component consists of individual assessments, individual and group counseling, substance abuse treatment, educational services, skills-based training and alumni services. The goal of the facility is to provide an intensive treatment program for PPS offenders that emphasizes relapse prevention and preparation for transfer back into the community.
