After closing in March, 2020 because of COVID the center reopened in October, 2020 as a result of completing three inspections that we were meeting or exceeding CDC guidelines for social distancing, air ventilation, disinfection of contact surfaces and a detailed screening process for clients and staff entering and working in the center. The restart process began slowly as we began to see clients in the office instead of phone call updates. The staff continued to review their goals and document the progress made in the last year. The expansion of the OBK reentry center (2019) in East St. Louis as a result of leasing from Catholic Urban Programs a two story building (614 N. 7 th Street, East St. Louis) has allowed us to provide and expand direct services to those on parole, probation and those already out of prisons and jails.
