Since we started, Here to Help has done a lot of work with returning citizens as they begin the process of successfully moving forward.
One of the difficulties returning citizens encounter is the limited resources to obtain basic necessities to comfortably live independently.
Here to Help continues to assist, as always, returning citizens through our other programs such as furniture through our Home Sweet Home program and paying first month’s rent or security deposit through our Roof Over Head program, but we felt there was more we can do.
So we formalized the Returning Hope to Returning Citizens program based on assistance we had provided over the years to returning citizens, including providing clothes and basic home furnishings such as dishes, cooking utensils, pots and pans, pillows, bed sheets/blankets, towels, silverware, microwave, television etc.
We can provide anything needed to assist someone in making a residence as comfortable and complete as possible.
If you or someone you know is a returning citizen and in need of assistance through this program then please simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know you are a returning citizen. If you wish to apply for one of our other programs, then follow the instructions on the page of that program and indicate you are a returning citizen.
Through our program we also are able to offer job placement, locating housing, financial literacy and act as a referral source for other organizations and agencies that assist returning citizens with job training, record expungement, mental health care etc. We can also supply direct help in the form of guidance and emotional support and other non-economic help.
