February, 2018
Generations of Philadelphia families are incarcerated together

“I hadn’t hugged my father in so many years, or heard his voice. It was bittersweet, because we’re both in prison and having to see each other in here.”
4 smart practices for hiring formerly incarcerated Philadelphians

“We are a trauma-informed organization, which means that the first priority is that everyone feels safe and accepted and cared for. On staff, at both locations, we have a crisis counselor and recovery coach. They do workshops and small groups things, but their primary focus is one-on-one sessions with participants to maintain recovery.”

"As we head into the playoffs, I have high expectations on the field and off. This past year has been an interesting journey, full of learning, exploration, and a search for answers regarding the injustices that continue to plague communities of color.

More than ever, I’m a firm believer that people, once informed, are willing to take action and lend support to those who need it. So, here’s my wish list for 2018 for the state of Pennsylvania."
Do you have a returning citizen-friendly workplace?

"The icon itself is a key emoji, employing a generations-old symbol of removing obstacles that we vetted with several returning citizens.

Still haven't seen The Reentry Blueprint?

Last fall we hosted “The Reentry Blueprint: Stories and Solutions from the Formerly Incarcerated” at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia.

The event was intended to advance the conversation on reentry in Philadelphia by providing a platform for formerly incarcerated people to present effective models that address the challenges facing others with criminal histories.
