LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS
Each year approximately 20,000 persons return home in our region from serving their time in prison. Most of these men and women will experience great difficulty in managing basic necessities for successful reintegration: finding work and housing, reunifying with family, accessing health and substance abuse services that are crucial for recovery. Many newly released individuals are estranged from family and friends, or are choosing to find newer, more supportive networks.
Our goal is to help prevent returning citizens from falling back to previous mistakes by helping them find and follow a path to a new career. We do this by creating a support network centered around volunteer mentors who work closely with returning citizens and providing much needed resources and services. Together, we help participants overcome big and small obstacles on route to finding a job, a safe place to live, and a community of support.
