Community Service

Community Service

Our Community Service Program serves both as an alternative to incarceration and to promote social responsibility by allowing offenders to repay the community through services from the approved government, business or non-profit organizations. 

Also, our court referred clients work at one of the many sites in Schenectady County that participate in the community service program.

The Community Service Program serves as an alternative to incarceration. We work with several government and non-profit organizations in the community who are able to provide appropriate community service projects for our clients.
