About Your Donations, Where & How They are used
A hub of resources. We have become a clearing house of community resources to help the newly released meet their immediate needs and help them achieve their long term goals.
After ten years, our outreach has broadened, our services have expanded but our focus is still the same.
We provide the newly released with a second chance and the tools to be successful.
Your donations help fund the programs we offer to give people a second chance.
Our Mission Statement
We are growing
We have gone from serving 400 people our first year to serving over 4000 in 2016, and over 7,000 visitors in 2019.

Besides clothes, coffee and conversation; we offer hygiene products, use of a computer, use of a telephone, a chance to sign up for a mentoring program or attend life skills classes.
