This innovative, research-based nonresidential model results in the successful reintegration of formerly-incarcerated persons into their families and communities.  Our holistic approach engages and prepares prisoners prior to release, utilizes successful ex-offenders as leaders, role models, and mentors, builds collaborations with stakeholders, and creates positive pro-social networks in the community.  The results are: productive, tax-paying citizens, stronger families and communities, increased public safety, reduced costs to taxpayers, and improved quality of life in the region and across the state.
