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.
-Serves previously incarcerated women with demonstrated desire to restart their lives.
-Not limited by type of conviction or length of sentence
-Supports successful initial reentry and preparation for permanent housing and sustainable employment.
-Leverages key partnerships with other agencies for identified support services such as case management, mental health counseling, addiction treatment, financial training, construction on-the-job training, college education, etc.
