About Safer Foundation

Safer Foundation is one of the nation’s largest nonprofit social impact organizations focusing on human capital development for people with criminal records. At Safer, we focus on helping our clients secure and maintain employment because we understand that employment offers the best chance at successful reentry.

Safer Foundation believes community corrections, or Adult Transition Centers, are vital to providing incarcerated individuals a chance to restructure and stabilize their lives. Safer is the only non-profit agency to operate two secured residential Adult Transitional Centers (ATCs) on behalf of the Illinois Department of Corrections.


Safer Foundation’s evidence-based programs are geared toward addressing the barriers to reentry. Employment and employment-related services are the cornerstones of our service delivery system, which includes job preparedness, placement and retention services.



Safer’s Adult Transition Centers (ATCs) prepare qualified residents with 6 to 24 months left on their sentence the opportunity to gradually transition to the community. Residents receive assessment and treatment services and can take advantage of highly structured programs that can lead to employment pre and post-release.
