Be a part of reaching our goal of $60,000 towards our client program expansion.

What are the Obstacles to Re-Entry?

Did you know between 1980 and 2019, the number of incarcerated women increased by more than 700%?  The growth rate of female imprisonment has been twice as high as the male population since 1980.

The Bureau of Justice reports that within five years, nearly 3 out of 4 of those released from prison are rearrested.

The Road to Re-Entry

Have you had to get identification since COVID?

You know the process, at least in North Carolina, is no longer walk in/walk out.  The wait for an appointment is on average 6 weeks, and that’s if you have your other identifying documents: birth certificate, social security card, passport, etc.  Without a valid ID, you can’t apply for a job, an apartment, or public services. 

Obtaining identification is step one for successful re-entry.

Have you ever had to start from scratch?

“It wasn’t the people that overwhelmed me in the store that first night home.  It was having to decide between 45 kinds of cereal.” 

Upon release from prison, you have to start over.  You are moving from a controlled environment to days filled with decisions.  The shear volume of  what you need to choose can create tremendous anxiety.
