It is our mission to provide supportive service programs to recently released returning citizens and members of the community, to significantly help to alter their life course by helping to reduce relapse and recidivism vulnerability and remove treatment barriers for individuals actively seeking recovery from substance use and mental health disorders through the provision of safe, supervised housing and related supportive services.”
