We Are About Change

Not only does this program reunite families, but it strengthens communities and enhances public safety by expanding legitimate opportunities for individuals who are returning to the community.



Providing safe housing to formerly incarcerated people in tandem with comprehensive reentry programs that focus on education, employment, and healing -- developing leaders through advocacy opportunities that support the building of equity for whole families.

Providing economic justice and equity for marginalized people through education and housing opportunities.


Shared Housing

Affordable shared rooms allow for the healing process to begin before reuniting with children. It provides stability, cultural support, and confidence during the transformation from surviving to living.


Family Housing

Affordable family units costing no more than 30% of your income; that provide a nurturing environment, continuous wrap-around family services, and peer support.
