About A New Way of Life:

A New Way of Life Reentry Project (ANWOL) advances multi-dimensional solutions to the effects of incarceration:

Through our household goods distribution center, more than 3,500 formerly homeless individuals have been able to acquire items needed to furnish their own residences. Since its inception in 2007, our legal department has provided pro bono services for over 2,500 formerly incarcerated individuals. Those services have helped enhance job opportunities by expunging criminal records and offering access to occupational licenses. As a result of our leadership building activities, hundreds more have been educated and empowered to speak in advocacy around issues that directly affect their lives.
