Mission: Providing prisoners and former prisoners with assistance post prison in the form of tuition, housing and support to decrease recidivism rates
Programs: The post-prison education program provides access to education and unwavering support through wrap around services including tuition, housing, groceries, daycare and intensive mentoring. The program's innovative approach provides extensive outreach in prisons and intensive support post-release. Currently, our rate of recidivism is less than 2%, which is a testament to our proven methods. The program only admits individuals who are at significant risk of recidivating based on their extensive prison sentences. The post-prison education program fights to create hope where there is none through inspiring presentations inside prisons and intensive support upon release.
I am thoroughly impressed by the never-quit attitude possessed by all who work for and through this small non-profit, especially in the face of innumerable and established obstacles.
They provided real help when it was needed and they were the only house on the block.
