ONE JOURNEY ENDS. ANOTHER BEGINS.

Ninety-six percent of people in prison will one day be released back into the community — our community. Think about that for a second. There’s a good chance you’ve stood next to a former offender in line at the grocery story, sat next to them at the movies or even struck up a conversation at your child’s bus stop.

The United States has the highest incarceration rate of any country in the world. Yet, we are ill-prepared to help former offenders reintegrate into the community once they’ve served their sentence.

They face roadblocks to housing, employment, education, financial resources, family reunification, and so much more. Journey to New Life works to remove those roadblocks and restore opportunity to those re-entering life after prison. Given the opportunity, we believe they can become successful, contributing — and valued — members of our community. All it takes is a solid chance to begin again.
