Our Neighborhood Opportunity Networks, or NeON SM, juvenile operations and other programs continue to break new ground in community corrections – leading the way nationally and providing critical services throughout our City. Our dedicated practitioners are making a difference and ensuring public safety by taking that extra step to assist someone on supervision with needed treatment, job training or housing. NeONs provide those on probation with necessary structure – they are, first and foremost, local probation supervision sites. But they are also a place of support where we provide resources and services to both those on probation and other members of the community. This includes not only the issuance of IDNYC, enrollment in health insurance, HSE classes, and more, but also our signature initiatives: NeON Nutrition Kitchens SM, NeON Clothing Closets SM, NeON Arts SM, and NeON Sports SM. The NeON model of working with, and within, the community is transformative for both those on probation and others.
