What We Do
Our mission is to stop the flow of African-Americans and all Americans to prison. Our banner program, the Red Sea Crossings Mentoring and Scholarship program matches trained volunteers who are culturally competent with formerly incarcerated persons. Our mentors are life navigators who make a one year commitment to go on a journey with a ready-for-success returning citizen who has paid his or her dues yet faces legalized discrimination in housing, employment, education and voting. The staff supports the match with referrals to needed services. We provide career networking support groups, group mentoring for those on our waiting list, and in 2018 we added the Interview Readiness Camps.
We are a loving, compassionate Christian faith 501c3 operating foundation.
