About Us

We started on this journey in 2003, with a staff of 15 people, as the first charter school in the nation to operate in county jails. Today we are a much different social justice non-profit agency that has expanded its charter schools into 9 counties, in 24 jail locations and over 80 community learning centers. In addition to our schools, now we also run multiple homeless shelters, employment programs, programs for the unsheltered, reentry programs and housing for women suffering from immense injustice. 

We seek out ways to make real differences in people’s lives and it’s working as demonstrated by the fact that we are proud to employ over 300 returned citizens.

Additionally, our network of community and government partners are purposefully selected to support our mission: Through the use of social and restorative justice principles, Five Keys provides traditionally underserved communities the opportunity to improve their lives through a focus on the Five Keys: EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT, RECOVERY, FAMILY, COMMUNITY.
