A Bridge to Lasting Change.  

Our vision is to reduce rearrest, relapse, and risk by supporting individuals on their path to a stronger future. See Hope. See How.  Visit our website

We help break the cycle of crisis for individuals and communities through reigniting connection, self-discovery, and dreaming. We build a bridge between crisis to successful engagement with community resources by preparing people to see and seize lasting change through our three programs: Enriching Schools Program, PACE Program, and Empowering Adults Program.

Hard Facts that Need to Change

45% of former prisoners rearrested within one year (Nationally)

64% of individuals within year one after recovery programs relapse (Nationally)

36% of former prisoners rearrested within three years (Minnesota)


CHOOSING MY FUTURE

It has not been easy — multiple overdoses, numerous attempts at getting free, but now two years after meetings with my Empowering Adults Program Life Advocate, I found encouragement and structure. I am so excited to say that I am on my final stretch in my studies for cybersecurity.


I CAN DO IT THIS TIME!

Working with my Empowering Adults Program Life Advocate really helped me set goals for a better me. After completing my 14 weeks, I have worked with UpWorks Partners in finding housing and I am enrolling in college in the spring. I can do it this time.
