OVERVIEW

Project Kinship aims to provide services and training to lives impacted by incarceration, gangs, and violence in the community through hope, healing, and transformation. Services include both direct services and capacity training for system and community agencies. Project Kinship’s staff provides emotional support and advocacy as we assist individuals through the stages of change and transformation by providing early intervention, prevention, reentry support and intervention, as well as assistance with system network care and service. A strong emphasis is centered on promoting system care access, individual and family driven case management services, short-term individual and group counseling, and group educational/skills classes. Program participants are provided with support that helps to develop hope, healing, and transformation which allows for the ownership of a meaningful and productive life.
