We Support

Returning Citizens

60% of prison sentences come from violations of probation or supervised release.

In many of these cases, offenders are put in prison for violations like missing appointments or failing a drug test, and not for committing new crimes.
Support is CRUCIAL.
Individuals returning home face new possibilities—and unique challenges. We support people with access to jobs, housing and food. We also partner with providers of services such as mental health services and drug and alcohol counseling. Our services help those returning home by providing a smooth transition, hope and opportunity.

Our Approach

How do you fund and supply your programs?

As a non-profit we are fully funded by the generous donations of those who give. That is why we ask that you consider supporting our mission. We also rely on community partnerships to help further our cause. We are seeking partnerships to continue in this work.

How is what Al-Maa’uun offers different from other programs?

We don’t fixate on our differences. We work to unify the community in service. Our deep respect for the nuance of neighbors’ needs and aspirations lies at the heart of Al-Maa’uun’s collaborative programming.

It’s also a complex process. There are many moving parts to manage. We’re up to the challenge, and so are the individuals we partner with. Will you join us?
