Through Employment, We Empower!

Participants in our free Ready4Release and Ready4Work program receive training, job placement, financial benefits, support services, housing and transportation assistance – everything needed to build a new future after involvement with the criminal justice system.

For over 20 years, we have worked to build strategic partnerships and foster community coalitions. By building Cities of Second Chances, we reconnect people with the workforce, their families, and their communities. Become a partner today. 

Cultivate stronger communities by creating opportunities to realize second chances and reduce recidivism. Donate now to help the thousands of people returning from incarceration to communities across Florida.
