Partnerships with existing local organizations are crucial to our success. To that end, we have established relationships with the following organizations:

  • Offender Aid and Restoration (OAR) - Jefferson Area Community Corrections
    • Provides community correction and reentry services for the Charlottesville area. Dedicated to providing safe, evidence-based and cost effective alternatives to incarceration for Central Virginia. 
  • Community Investment Collaborative (CIC)
    • CIC strengthens our community and contributes to economic development by fueling the success of under-resourced entrepreneurs through education, mentoring, micro-lending and networking.
  • Charlottesville Works Initiative
    • Helps Charlottesville families who do not make enough money to pay for the essentials of life identify job opportunities within their reach and position them to secure and excel in those jobs - real jobs for real people.
  • Drive to Work
    • Helps low income or previously incarcerated persons restore their driving privileges so they can drive to work and keep a job—benefiting the individuals, their children and families, and the community. 
  • Virginia Department of Corrections
  • Resilience Education
    • Provides high-quality, customized educational programs to organizations and individuals that might otherwise go overlooked. Current projects include entrepreneurship education for prisoner’s reentering society, and financial literacy for victims of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV).
