Did you know that the average recidivism rate (people returning to prison after release) in the U.S. is over sixty percent? While we know that personal choices will always be the determining factor in someone's life outcome, we also know that many people make choices out of soul wounding and physical circumstance. If presented with no better choice, often people will make the same choices they've always made, and continue the cycles of pain they are familiar with.
What's Our Mission?
We believe that good and honest work is one step in the journey of restoring dignity. We also believe that every soul is designed with creative ability, and creative expression can lead to healing the soul. We believe these two factors together will give individuals the opportunity to break cycles and make better choices for their future. We come alongside these individuals with real paying job opportunities, and rehabilitation steps through doing work that is creative and brings healing.
How Do We Do it?
We fund a care package for individuals coming out of jail or prison. Each package contains specific products to meet immediate needs as well as first step resources for rehabilitation.
We fund a center in West Haven, Utah where we offer trauma recovery resources, and employment opportunities for the vulnerable.
We fund the Ogden Connection Center in Ogden, Utah, where individuals can receive professional development resources and guidance for rehabilitation.
