About Us

Vision: Constructing our Future (COF) was created and continues to be led by previously incarcerated women. Our vision is that previously incarcerated women leaving prison who have a strong desire to restart their lives need to have a home base where they feel supported and welcomed back to the community and to have a path to permanent housing and sustainable employment.

Mission: Constructing our Future (COF) welcomes back previously incarcerated women who have demonstrated a sincere desire to be independent, law abiding citizens upon their return by providing a safe, affordable place to live immediately upon release and a path to permanent, stable housing. COF surrounds the newly released woman with other women who have taken a similar journey and it prepares them for livable wage jobs, independent living, and family reintegration through: mentorships; connections with necessary resources; assistance with financial, social, and job skills; and access to education, recovery and mental health services. COF also advocates for public policies that support full reintegration of previously incarcerated women.
