The process of being incarcerated is difficult and leaving prison can be just as trying, particularly for any inmate or ex-offender with a record. Coming out of incarceration as a Felon after serving a lengthy sentence has many hard obstacles that must be overcome. Two of the most glaring situations that must be addressed are Housing & Work. Here at The Rock Found we offer housing options and work opportunities for those coming out of prison. Re-entry Programs extend a helping hand for ex-offenders and also has many benefits for the community as well.
One of our main goals at The Rock Found is assisting with lowering recidivism for all ex-offenders and felons no matter their creed, sex, race or affiliations.
