Resource Center

000001secondchancebutton-smaller_0Resource Center Without Walls

Through a network of community partners, we work with men and women in prison, former prisoners, people in transition, and their families through our “Resource Center Without Walls”. We provide small group trainings and individual mentoring in general life skills, leadership, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and areas related to transitioning back into family and community life.

We also convene gatherings that provide the opportunity for people with life experience with the criminal justice and prison systems to network with each other, exchange knowledge and resources, and solve problems. These gatherings usually take the shape of family sessions to strengthen family relationships as well as support and empowerment groups for prisoners and former prisoners. We also collaboratively convene round-tables for people to learn more about the criminal justice and prison systems from people with real life experiences, and organize advocacy efforts around related issues.
