Reentry-Focused Jobs

Sometimes you just need the first job you can get. This is where you can look for that something-right-now that will tide you over.

We’d like to help with your job search, person to person. But we are also listing resources here so if you want to tackle things yourself, you can take this as a starting point.

As there are other organizations that focus strictly on jobs upon reentry, where possible we partner with them to help provide you services.

Accessible Housing

If you’re fortunate enough to have family or loved-one support, and they are in Section 8 housing, you probably can’t go near it, because you might get them kicked out.

And if you don’t know anyone, and you’re facing hard decisions about shelter, look here. Talk to us. We might know, and if not, we might know someone who does.


Humans do not live on bread and a roof over their head. We need those things, to be sure, but we need more. There are people who would love what you’ve got to contribute.

Giving Back

Maybe you’re sitting pretty, things are looking good, you got a studio lined up, a grant or two under construction, projects underway. If you’re ready to give back, here are some ways to do that.
