Program Partners: Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency (BOSS)
Project Type: Adaptive Reuse – 35,000 square feet
Status: Concept in development
The Hope Reentry Project will create a holistic community-of-care campus that seeks to break the barriers to reentry that many men and women face as they get back on their feet. Our strategy is to deploy this “program-and-place” model in African-American churches, community buildings, warehouses, and other underutilized spaces, transforming them to provide onsite access to job training, advanced education, social services, a well-designed place to live, and a spiritual home for 40 formerly incarcerated men. In addition, customized mobile rooms have been designed to maximize beds, provide workforce development opportunities through their fabrication, and provide a private comfortable space to rest and work.
