Judge Luongo Fund

Federal judge Gerald Austin (Jerry) McHugh, Jr. has marked his first anniversary of service in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania by establishing a new fund with the Philadelphia Bar Foundation, named in honor of one of his mentors, the late Alfred L. Luongo. The Judge Luongo Fund will support the Court’s “Supervision to Aid Reentry” or STAR Program which seeks to help ex-offenders succeed in transitioning back to the community.

The goal of the STAR reentry program is to provide support and resources to ex-offenders who are reintegrating into the community, including assistance with employment, housing, and health care.
