Many ex-offenders face an uphill battle just to meet their basic needs.
Our Mission: To reintegrate those formerly incarcerated back into community life. Our Vision: To reduce poverty, homelessness, unemployment and criminal behavior among the formerly incarcerated. Our goal is to reduce the impact of repeat offenders upon public safety, public spending, families and individual lives.
Awringa Worldwide seeks to break this cycle by providing workforce education and financial literacy classes for inmates, an annual reentry lecture series for the general public, information and referrals for felons seeking housing, programs, and employment.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs more than 650,000 people are released from state and federal prisons annually reentering our communities. Many wish to become law-abiding citizens and have the best intention of living a conventional life yet have few job skills, lack a formal education, and experience discrimination in housing and job markets because of their felony records.
As a result, they become our local statistics—the homeless, the unemployed, the under-educated, the impoverished. Unable to make it in the conventional world, over 76% are rearrested for a new crime within five years which contributes to victimization and drains community resources.
Reentry programs allow ex-offenders to befriend others that are in their same position. This offers a support system that can be helpful and also promotes a team environment. Awringa Worldwide focus on housing, job skill training, academic education, and establishing a supportive network is a common-sense solution to the difficult challenges former offenders face when they reenter our communities.
