Thursday, July 27
7 p.m. on Zoom

With Priscilla Turgon, Founder and Executive Director

Re-entering the community following incarceration produces some extraordinary challenges. Project New Start operates a comprehensive, results-oriented cognitive behavioral change/job-readiness program for individuals transitioning out of state and federal institutions. With strong community partnerships, the New Start program equips participants with the skills to successfully re-enter the workforce, contribute positively to their families and communities, and transform themselves into ex-offenders. Project New Start ‘s recidivism rate is under 25% compared to 76% in the state, and over 90% of program graduates have secured employment, with 80% are sustaining their success. Join us as we learn about this remarkable program! Hosted by Westminster’s Peace & Justice Work Group.
