WorkWell is a collaboration among partners. Partners offer expertise, time and resources to help us best serve individuals adjusting to life beyond prison.

Our mission

Working together to equip returning citizens
with job skills, dignity and hope

Our vision

Removing walls,
Building community

People re-entering life beyond prison bars face difficult challenges. Ways to help include:
