"I needed a safe haven, and Project Return was definitely there, because I could have easily gone back to my old community. Project Return is like home to me."
When Elijah got out of prison, he was homeless and unemployed, but determined to start on a new path, which is why he came to Project Return.
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 is solely dedicated to the successful new beginnings of people who are returning to our community after incarceration. We provide the resources and services needed to gain employment and build full and free lives.




A day in the life of Lewis, a man seeking a new hope and future… a freedom many of us forget we have.
