Resources for People Coming Home Under the First Step Act
Last year, #cut50 fought to pass the First Step Act. Now, thousands of people are returning home from federal prison and reuniting with their families!
We're working around the clock to make sure people have the resources and support they need to succeed. Check back Friday, July 19th for more information on the exciting partnerships and resources #cut50 secured to benefit individuals released by the First Step Act. We will also launch an online directory of critical service providers and Empathy Network partners around the country.
In the meantime, you can download First Step to Second Chances, a guide that we have developed in partnership with Root & Rebound thanks to the generous support of The Margaret and Daniel Loeb Foundation. The guide covers how to navigate the early days of release, what individuals' rights are with a criminal record, and where to go for support and resources.
Let's work together to make sure that individuals coming home are #ReentryReady!
