Pennsylvania Prison Society: Building Bridges- A Second Chance Initiative

We recognize that year after year, men and women are being released from prison and returning home to communities across the country. In Pennsylvania alone, 90 percent of those in prison will return to the community.
Building Bridges- A Second Chance Initiative program seeks to ensure that in Pennsylvania, specifically in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, the former offender's road to reintegration is paved with community and family support.

Our challenge is reducing recidivism.

We believe that by providing men and women returning home from prison the necessary resources and support they need, we can make a difference in their lives.
