Rebuilding Lives, Rebuilding Community
Please support the long-held dream of a shared, intentional home for the formerly incarcerated, steeped in connection, mindfulness and restorative practices.
5 inspired and hard-working individuals need your help to raise funds for last month’s rent, deposit and start up costs for a safe, shared home. Studies show that stable housing and community support are among the most critical factors in promoting healthy reentry and preventing recidivism.
This group meets weekly in circle, practices Non-Violent Communication principles, hosts community conversations to educate and build alliances with the public and longs for a true home for grounding and mutual support.
Please help however you can!
