The Fortune Society's mission is to support successful re-entry from prison and promote alternatives to incarceration, thus strengthening the fabric of our communities. We do this by: BELIEVING in the power of individuals to change; BUILDING LIVES through service programs shaped by the needs and experiences of our clients; CHANGING MINDS through education and advocacy that work to rectify unjust and brutal criminal justice policies.
Drawing upon the life experience of Fortune's formerly incarcerated staff and clients, we offer a holistic, "one-stop" model which includes: alternatives to incarceration, counseling, career development, education, housing services, HIV/AIDS-case management, substance abuse treatment, family services, and lifetime aftercare, among other services.
