"People coming out of jail, we want it so bad, but we don't have the tools."
Each time Carl had been released he had never been able to get on his feet. He heard about Project Return while he was incarcerated and decided to give it a try.
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.
