Amazing Gospel Souls, INC

Amazing Gospel Souls, INC’s mission is to provide a safe and nurturing housing environment, workforce development training, and comprehensive case management, in the effort to help returning citizens restore themselves after incarceration and become assets to their communities.


Catholic Charities

Catholic Charities provides mentoring to men and women returning to their communities after incarceration. The goal is to help prevent returning citizens from falling back to previous mistakes by helping them find and follow a path to a new career. We do this by creating a support network centered  on volunteer mentors who work closely with returning citizens. Together, Catholic Charities helps overcome big and small obstacles on route to finding a job, a safe place to live, and a community of support.


Changing Perceptions

Changing Perceptions enables returning citizens to reach their full potential, personally and professionally by delivering personal and business development opportunities that pave the way for career paths and entry into the middle class. 


Community Connections

Community Connections’ mission is to provide behavioral health, residential services, and primary health care coordination for marginalized and disenfranchised women, men, youth, and children living in the District of Columbia, many of whom are coping with challenges including mental illness, addiction, and the aftermath of trauma and abuse. 


Community Family Life Services

Founded in 1969, Community Family Life Services, Inc. (CFLS) is a women-focused reentry organization providing wraparound services to help families move into self-sufficiency. CFLS achieves its mission by providing short-term crisis assistance and working within the DC jail, Bureau of Prisons, women’s halfway house, and with community partners to establish connections with justice-involved women prior to their release.


Criminon New Life DC

Criminon New Life DC delivers a unique evidence-based program providing individuals with life skills they can use to improve their decision-making and reverse negative life habits. This puts them in a condition to be able to successfully navigate their reentry into their families and communities and helps to avoid future recidivism.

National Reentry Network for Returning Citizens

The National Reentry Network for Returning Citizen's (NRNRC) mission is to build a strong, national network comprised of individuals returning from incarceration who support each other’s successful reintegration. NRNRC uses a client-centered approach to identify basic needs and to create a continuum of care that can address barriers to reentry, promote restorative practices, and reduce recidivism.


Project New Opportunity

Project New Opportunity (PNO) represents a promising model to address reentry, particularly reentry from federal prison. The experience to date shows the importance of the “inside- outside” connection, the efficacy of a program that attends to the adjustment from custody to community and the value of using formerly incarcerated people to guide this transition based upon their own experiences.
