OUR GOALS

  • Increase the effectiveness of the state-wide initiative to provide job-readiness, resume building, and expungement services by adding to the Reentry model, much needed emotional support, guidance, and strategic navigation of the systems at work in Maryland.
  • Build upon the shoulders of those who have begun the process of prison policy reform by integrating and educating from lived experience a lighter more agile model to empower women with criminal justice involvement throughout the life-cycle of their criminal justice involvement with an end goal of them exiting the system forever.
  • Teach women with criminal justice involvement how to coach other women using their hard-earned lived experiences thus creating employment opportunities for the disadvantaged Reentry population in Baltimore, Maryland, and the surrounding counties.
  • Listening and learning from our clients and customers that we serve of their deepest needs and updated concerns and plugging that directly into our model effectively and efficiently.

For eleven years our Founder and CEO has been entrenched in Reentry. She has volunteered in the local prisons and jails, she has personal stories of triumph in reentry, and she has empowered many women to overcome their challenges. Meet Jennifer DeNae Mears!

“Let me give you a word of the philosophy of reform. The whole history of the progress of human liberty shows that all concessions yet made to her august claims have been born of earnest struggle. The conflict has been exciting, agitating, all-absorbing, and for the time being, putting all other tumults to silence. It must do this or it does nothing. If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing up the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.”
