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.

Earlier this year I happened to be going through a life changing situation and was recommended by my lawyer to visit this program, when i entered the receptionist area i was greeted by the most compassionate person that i would have expected to fine in an environment of this sort. She wasn't proud or puff up, she carefully ask me questions to understand my needs and fulfil the needs i had quickly.
