A New Way of Life Reentry Project provides women exiting prison (primarily women of color) with a safe, welcoming and structured place to stay, education and employment opportunities, case management, and legal services as they re-enter the community.

Grant Purpose: 

To provide support for direct service work addressing racial equity.

This grant will support our work and continued efforts in equity and opportunity for formerly incarcerated people and their children. With The Foundation's support, we are able to expand our housing services with two more safehouses during the pandemic for the women we serve. Thanks to The Foundation, a safe and stable home is possible for current and future residents during these difficult times.
