Hudson Link was founded in 1998, at a time where New York state and federal funding for college education in prisons ceased. The abrupt loss of a college program had a devastating effect on prison morale. As a result, inmates at Sing Sing Correctional Facility reached out to religious and academic volunteers for assistance, which received their immediate response.
Under the leadership of Dr. Anne Reissner, Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison was birthed with the hopes of restoring college education at Sing Sing through private funding.
