You’ve done the crime, done the time, and now your ready to start anew! Well, New York City has made your reintroduction into society a bit more civil with its brand-new Resource Hub. The Department of Probation opened up the hub after the complete redo of an otherwise drab waiting room. The space is now a bright, vibrant, and cheery place. Not only can you sit and wait your turn to see your probation officer in comfort, but now you can also learn all about local opportunities, visit with representatives of community-based organizations, and use personal computers that are customized to interface videos and news with useful information. There is also plenty of reading material available to speed up the waiting time.
But wait. Standing O wants to know, “Is is stocked up with Standing O pages?” If not, you could always check us out at BrooklynDaily.com and look for a job in our classifieds!
Ribbon snippers included Probation Commissioner Vincent Schiraldi, Assistant Commissioner Karen Armstrong, Diane Stroud from Fidelis Care, probation client Anthony, Judge Barry Kamins, and Brooklyn Borough President Markowitz.
