Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Getting the clients working to be self-supporting, provide assistance through support and accountability, incentives for items needed for work, transportation, housing and programs to keep them from returning to prison.

Funding for providing assistance, relationships with employers, property management companies, schools, community partners as well as programs such as MRT, Authentic Manhood, Room for Hope, OSHA Training, health and wellness.

We currently have a strong network in place, we are a WAGEES partner.

We have met the goals of the WAGEES grant for the past five years and are on-track to double all of our numbers this year!
