About Us

The Safe Return Project is driven by individuals impacted by the criminal justice system and inequity. Our goal is to identify strategies that respond to community needs, while developing the capacity for formerly incarcerated residents to take the lead on the issues that impact their communities and build their sense of agency. Since the program’s inception, we have worked with formerly incarcerated residents to carry out critical participatory action research, data gathering and analysis, community organizing, and policy advocacy to build community power, foster healing, and address issues impacting individuals who have come into contact with the criminal justice system. In addition to developing the leadership and accountability of those returning home from incarceration, we also work to improve their quality of life by reducing barriers to quality programs, economic dignity, housing, and family reunification.
