SUPPORTIVE RE-ENTRY

With many of our young people of Color falling into increased numbers of recidivism, we have partnered with NWCM and GBHU to create program for those impacted by the Justice system. They have support in obtaining I.D.s, Work clothes, Driver’s licenses etc. They participate in groups weekly and check in with their resource navigator to ensure their release plan is coming together.
