About POST-PRISON EDUCATION PROGRAM

Location:

PO BOX 31092, SEATTLE, WA 98119, US

Mission Statement

The Post-Prison Education Program aims to dramatically reduce recidivism by harnessing the power of education. The Program offers hope and opportunity to people leaving prison by providing the support needed to gain a meaningful education and become active members of their communities. Formerly imprisoned people are supported in finding employment, housing, mental health and other services to break free from cycles of hopelessness, poverty and imprisonment and achieve a higher education. In turn, an education opens the door to sustaining a living wage, clean and sober housing, responsible living and strengthened families--the most important factors in breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty and crime, thereby increasing community safety and decreasing taxpayer dollars spent on repeated incarceration.
