The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) was enacted to prevent sexual assaults and harassment in residential facilities housing individuals under the control of various components of the judicial system. PREA's provisions apply to both client/client and client/staff interactions. Renaissance has a zero tolerance policy toward all forms of sexual abuse and harassment in our facilities and programs. To report an act of sexual abuse or harassment, individuals should contact either the Program Director or Renaissance's PREA Coordinator, Grace Gaynor (203 336-5225 x2108).
