This story is exactly that, a nice story. However, the fact is that it is just not true for most ex-offenders living in Williamsport, at least not to my knowledge. If I am wrong I would so like to be corrected and given contact information because local state parole does not offer this information or "mandate" this type of activity/treatment. Why do you think the prisons are full anyway? This all sounds real nice but it is just not true. The reality is after individuals are released from prison and come back to Williamsport area they are left to figure it out on their own.
