Clearing a New Path: Creating Opportunities For Returning People

The main goals of this program are to:

      • Increase awareness of the issue in the general public
      • Increase access to safe, affordable housing and meaningful employment opportunities
      • Provide a restorative space for the community and participants.

This series will involve community members, organizations and businesses in a conversation about addressing the stigma associated with a criminal record, the challenges of inaccessibility of housing and employment with a felony record, the community benefits to reducing these barriers, and strategies for addressing these barriers.

We are proud to partner with the United Way of Washtenaw County in clearingUnited Way Logo a new path and expanding accessibility for people working to move past their record.
