Our immediate need is for more housing. Currently we have 5 homes, with a capacity for 24 residents total. We are unable to accept legitimate residential applicants due to a lack of space, and estimate 25-30 men are turned away each month for that reason.
We would like to purchase 2 more homes with a budget of $40k each. We are currently looking for suitable properties! Your support would make an eternal difference for men seeking a new way of life.
"The moment ex-prisoners step off the bus in your community, a daunting challenge stares them smack in the face – where to find a safe place to sleep that night.
Very few prisoners have a loving family waiting for them to come home. Instead, family members may have died, moved away, or made it clear the ex-offender is not welcome.
A safe place to live is essential to a successful reentry."
