Additional Ways to Support

Although financial support is one of the critical needs of the program, there are many others ways individuals and programs can assist:

  • Mentors- We need mentors to provide ongoing support to program participants that will commit to regular meetings and calls to ensure the success of program participants.

  • Employment Opportunities-  There will be a demand for livable-wage employment options for participants who complete the employment pathway.  High-growth careers are most desired by the Project Restart team including technology, trades and transportation.  If you are a felony-friendly employer, please contact us with employment opportunities.

  • Education/ Training/ Certification Programs- Participants completing the education pathway will need to be accepted into an education or training program.  We are seeking partnerships with employers or training programs that will lead to employment in high-growth, high-demand felony-friendly industries including technology, trades and transportation.

  • In-Kind Donations- If you or your business would like to provide materials or supplies to Project Restart, please contact us to discuss this.  We welcome food, computers, office supplies, software, professional clothing, print services, marketing services, technology support, transportation services and more.

​If you or your organization is interested in partnering with the program in any of these ways, visit the contact page and share your information.
