Why We Are Unique
We are people with lived experience
We are the only support group for offenders in the Greater Toronto Area. We have lived the experience of navigating back into society. We
Provide a support system to help recently released offenders find jobs, housing and educational opportunities
Coach on successful habits such as networking and building positive relationships
Help achieve their goals such as starting their own business and graduating college/university
We create peer mentors
Once settled, our participants become mentors to other recently released offenders.
We reduce costs to society
The cost of incarceration is about $100,000/person/year. In Canada, our criminal justice system costs about $9billion/year. 70% of offenders end up re-offending.
We hope to make a difference.
We provide leadership and sports programming to our partners John Howard Society, For Youth Initiative, Yonge Street Mission and the Salvation Army.
