Show your support for reforming how prisoners are reintegrated into society and help raise awareness of this critical issue.
More about the Post-Prison Education Program:
The Program offers hope and create opportunity for men and women returning to society from prison by providing wraparound services centered on post-secondary education. Students are offered the tools and human support needed to find gainful, meaningful employment, and break free from cycles of hopelessness, inter-generational poverty and imprisonment, and to become leaders for change.We believe that recidivism is a solvable problem and the rate can be virtually zero. We hope to clarify why our organizations methods work instead of current mainstream public policy.
We must seek clarity, justice, and change for those engulfed in a worldwide silent epidemic: mental illness.
