Louisiana has the highest incarceration rate in the world, and each month, hundreds of formerly incarcerated persons are released in the Baton Rouge area. These individuals are often without resources, education or support, and many find themselves in a cycle of homelessness. As an organization, we feel called to respond to this systemic crisis in our community.
Our hope is to help the formerly incarcerated to become self-sufficient, reduce the rate of recidivism and transform our communities and our city.
We work with individuals toward self-sufficiency through:
- assisting individuals through partnerships like The Capital Area Reentry Coalition (CAPARC), the local and federal Office of Probation and Parole, and the Louisiana Prison Reentry Initiative.
- educating potential employers and finding job opportunities for formerly incarcerated persons.
- personalized employment case management programs.
- Employer Engagement Forums to create awareness of the need and community benefits of hiring the formerly incarcerated.
