Participants at Project Return are making the return of their lives, coming back from incarceration to our community, often with little more than the shirts on their backs and a criminal record.

At Project Return, we meet the need with opportunity, changing one life at a time by propelling folks toward employment while making sure basic needs are met. Our clients have done their time, paid their debt, and want to work on the path of a successful return.

Project Return equips former offenders with the education, coaching, and support services necessary to gain employment and begin a new life.
