About Adult Services
Proyecto Nueva Vida (PNV) is a unique collaboration among three Bridgeport agencies, CASA, Inc., OPTIMUS, Inc., and The Council’s CO-OP Center. This 13-year old collaborative provides culturally specific services to Latinos who have a criminal history, as well as substance abuse prevention needs and who have or are at risk of HIV infection. In addition, PNV holds a monthly Family Forum which provides an educational presentation for clients and their suppport person(s) within a meal setting. PNV Mentors also provide support services to PNV clients as well as give back to the community through educational and civic events.
PNV is funded by the state Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and serves approximately 80 clients per year. Admission into the program is by referral.
