Helping America's most vulnerable™

Project Reboot

Reboot your life after incarceration

Project Reboot helps you make important changes in your approach to:

  • Employment habits
  • Finding and keeping stable, affordable housing
  • Making smart moves related to personal finances

We combine elements of all three of those areas, building on strategies which have proven successful in helping people make positive changes.
