Reentry Support Starts with a Backpack. Donate Today.

Our new clients often arrive with nothing but the clothes on their backs. You can help previously incarcerated individuals move out of crisis to become thriving citizens after reentry.

Employment

Empowerment

Sponsor a Backpack, Change a Life

A Welcome Home backpack is the first possession our clients receive after reentry. More than the water, snacks, hygiene items, rain poncho, and other contents, the backpack represents hope and a second chance.

It’s more than a backpack.

Beyond the Backpack:
Comprehensive Reentry Support

A backpack is just the beginning. Our clients also receive ongoing 1:1 reentry support for everything from food and clothing to secure housing, vital documents, employment, family reunification, education, and more. We are always just a call or text away, ready to help each client take the next step.

Can We Provide 96 Backpacks in June 2024?

We are trying to provide at least 96 fully stocked backpacks for newly released individuals this month. Each full backpack costs $60, so we need to raise $5,760 to hit our goal. Will you help?
