Providing mentoring to men and women returning to their communities after incarceration
Our goal is to help individuals returning to the community from incarceration to reintegrate successfully by creating a support network centered around volunteers and mentors. Together we help returning citizens overcome big and small obstacles as they seek employment and find safe housing and other services needed to prevent recidivism.
Everyone needs a second chance.
- 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.
Become a mentor. Make a difference.
Help us give returning citizens the opportunity to be productive and positive members of our community! Contacts, connection, and community are needed to help these neighbors continue their commitment to build better lives for themselves and their families. Learn more and submit your application!
