Mission Statement

Our mission is to facilitate the successful reentry of DC citizens reentering society after being released from prison by providing assistance in gaining access to vital services and resources such as food, clothing, housing, transportation health care, counseling, job assistance and family reunification.


Our goal is to empower Returning Citizens through access to education so they can obtain the necessary certifications and skills to become self-sufficient and overcome the barriers they face with employment and homelessness. Our programs include outreach, education, skill building and financial empowerment. Through our outreach program we address the immediate needs of our citizens by providing adult backpacks that contain essential care items for men and women (appropriately) such as soap, deodorant, lotion, toothbrush and toothpaste, sanitary products for women, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) (mask, hand sanitizer, and antibacterial wipes), a transportation card, a Walmart card and a directory of resources within DC. Through a partnership with Saylor Academy a Nonprofit organization, we are able to provide Returning Citizens with tuition free education where Returning Citizens can obtain certifications in Professional Development. We also host financial empowerment workshops that educate citizens on the importance of money management and how to build wealth through budgeting, banking, debt management, understanding credit scores and reports and obtaining a mortgage.
