The mission is to invest in the lives of our ex-offenders by providing comprehensive programs that will aid their re-entry back into their communities; this will result in not being an "Ex-Offender" but a productive, valued member of society.
Becoming One Community (BOC) provides services located in the Houston area of Texas, Harris County. The organization was established to provide a comprehensive array of services to men and women who have been incarcerated, and are pardoned or on parole. The primary goal is the successful re-entry into society, and this is accomplished through providing a complete menu of services, activities, workshops, seminars, and referrals to support organizations.
We provide the following reentry services for our clients: job readiness training, financial management, housing assistance, know your righs, and healthy living.
Successful re-entry and preventing recidivism entails re-education, change in attitudes, and a shift in old emotional and social responses. The organization, BOC, refers to the ex-offender becoming one with the society that has been re-entered, but also, finding a sense of unity within self, to have a focused set of goals that our different from past experiences.
