Project 180 seeks to break this cycle by providing workforce education and financial literacy classes for inmates, an annual reentry lecture series for the general public, information and referrals for felons seeking housing, programs, and employment, and a comprehensive, whole-life Residential Program for men in recovery. Project 180 seeks to build community, not prisons.
Our Residential Program offers up to two years of stable residency, help with food, clothing, transportation, and fines that prevent the restoration of driving privileges, cultural opportunities in the community, and more.
This high-impact, long-term program is offered to a limited number of formerly incarcerated men to assist each in changing the trajectory of his life and, by extension, the lives of his family members.
Project 180 works primarily with our local Drug Treatment Court which recommends candidates for residency and provides recovery support and treatment.
Our program assists residents in stabilizing their lives. We offer:
Up to two years of full-time, stable residency
Matching funds up to $1,000 to pay off fees and fines that prevent the restoration of a residents driver license
Business incubation support
Strong emphasis on financial literacy and responsible finance management
Introduction to the arts, humanities, and mainstream cultural life
