Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Crime & Law, Rehabilitation Services for Offenders

Mission: Project Return''s mission is to provide services and connect people with resources needed to return successfully to work and community after incarceration.

Target demographics: Project Return serves individuals who've been convicted of a felony (or a serious misdemeanor with a 6-month or longer sentence) and who are recently released from prison (up to within 12 months of release from incarceration); we also work inside the prisons with persons nearing their release date.

Geographic areas served: Nashville, Davidson County, and Middle Tennessee

Programs: Upon release from an incarcerated setting, client service counselors assess the specific needs of each individual and an offender reentry plan is developed to help them successfully transition from incarceration to self-reliance in the community. In addition to job-training and employment assistance components, this multiphase action program provides referrals to other essential support services, follow-up counseling, mentoring, and direct aid.

I volunteered full time at Project Return for a year. It was with a heavy heart that I said my goodbyes to the staff and clients I had grown to care for and admire so greatly. I know with absolute certainty my life perspective was changed by seeing the resiliency all our clients possess. I was humbled and blessed to have had the opportunity to be a part of Project Return's success and I am confident this 30+ year old agency has many more years ahead of them to only grow more in their capacity to help those who deserve it.

I've volunteered with Project Return for about 4 months and have had an excellent experience. The staff are dedicated to providing high quality services to clients and really value the input and work of volunteers. I would highly recommend Project Return to eligible clients and volunteers looking to meaningfully engage with their community in important and often ignored work.

I was drawn to Project Return by the quality of their staff, and the nature of their mission. It continues to be my pleasure to function as their resident computer literacy trainer, w/emphasis on online job searching and securing. It has been one of the gratifying experiences of my adult life.

Project Return, Inc. in Nashville, TN is the best example of what a Nonprofit Organization must be. In a this time of pandering -so called nonprofits in the Nashville Metro area, it is to the benefit of all citizens that an organization with integretiy exists.
