A Chance To Thrive Home2021-06-28T20:25:08+00:00

A SENTENCE THAT DOESN’T END

Annually, over 3,600 people come home to the District after serving time in prison or jail. Many will have been away for years or decades, and they return to a city radically different from when they were first incarcerated.

Yet when they come home, they are often met with distrust, discrimination, and fear.

A Chance to Thrive aims to help DC residents understand how their social censure – through judgment, side glances, distrust, and exclusion – hurts our clients’ ability to succeed post-incarceration. With so many obstacles already facing returning citizens, offering someone a helping hand instead of fear is the best way to make this city a safe and better place.

They just want a chance to thrive.
