Respect & Compassion-
We embrace the diverse populations that we serve with compassion, understanding and respect.
We seek to create an open environment where we learn from each other, foster empowerment, and broaden our knowledge and awareness of the challenges our participant’s face.
We treat others with respect, extend professional courtesy and offer timely service and response.
We recognize participants are empowered to make choices and decisions for themselves.
We provide a trauma-informed environment where participants are able to move forward in a positive way, rather than be judged and put down for previous shortcomings or mistakes.
We provide a platform for open communication between participants and assigned case managers.
We will make sure our participants are heard and action is taken in a timely manner.
We strive to meet the following goals:
- Mission to end mass incarceration which has disproportionately affected communities
of color and of lower economic positioning.
- Breakdown barriers preventing individuals from re-integration into the workforce
- Provide on-the-job training to build skills to enter the workforce at a livable wage
- Provide a safe and stable living environment through short-term transitional housing
- Create a “Core Care Plan” with the participant to support their desire to get “back on
their feet” including how they will obtain permanent or transitional housing,
employment and engage with supportive services as needed.
- Provide mentorship and coaching for one year after completion of the programs
