HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Mr. Corwin Knight was released from FCI Fairton in New Jersey on September 27, 2007 making a commitment to never return. He soon realized that transitioning back into the community he left was no easy task. Through these endeavors, Mr. Knight began to volunteer for various agencies and non profits throughout his community. Understanding the lack of platforms for individuals trying to re-establish themselves, he opted to take steps towards making a difference. In August of 2010, the Hope Foundation was established under the direction of Executive Director and CEO, Corey Knight. As a successful ex-offender, he wanted to provide free pre and post release services to men and women returning to the Washington, DC community. Learn more about our founder and HFRN below.
