A Hub for
The Resource Project provides services, jobs, and resources to those who want to change but do not know where to look.
Thousands of individuals are released from imprisonment every day. Many people are incarcerated in unfamiliar cities, with no one to call, and without sufficient money in their pockets for a bus ticket back to their home city.
Because many of these individuals lack a place to work or home to sleep, an inescapable recidivism cycle inevitably proceeds. We look to connect the dots and create a social hub for corporations, social/ economic partners, and the authorities themselves to have one source to turn to connect individuals with the services they need.
Incarcerated individuals have children at home
Individuals are arrested every year
Individuals are released from prison/jail every year
Opportunity lies in linking individuals with organizations and create a simple solution for those who want help or jobs with those who provide these resources. From halfway houses to alcohol/substance treatment to finding a job, The Resource Project will become that locus.
Already, we have a partnership with VendEngine who has over 2 million users, incarcerated individuals, families, and jail admin in over 400 facilities across the country using this software to help individuals back into society. By connecting job postings, resources, and information, no longer will individuals be sent back to their towns to sleep on the streets.
Having the power to improve the lives of others is a privilege. There is currently a gap in the accessibility to resources. We are focused on bridging that gap and providing resources that are provided to individuals and caregivers to unite the country.Get Started
