An event hosted by Redemption Housing challenges participants to experience the reentry process

Think you have what it takes to navigate life as a returning citizen? – Generocity Philly

The next couple of months are filling up with events that will shed light on some local solutions for the issue of reentry, including a hackathon bringing together different communities and a TED Talk-style event where you’ll get to hear directly from those formerly incarcerated.

Could you make it on the outside after years in prison?

The Citizen Recommends: Day One Challenge – The Philadelphia Citizen

“What would you do if you found yourself fresh out of prison, a social outcast in a strange city, with nowhere to lay your head?” This is the question reentry service organization Redemption Housing is posing in its first ever Day One Challenge , a three-hour immersion into the experience of a person recently released from prison.
