- Florida’s prisons currently house over 102,000 inmates. 88% will be released at some point.
- 45% of those admitted to the Florida state prison system in 2010 were repeat offenders.
- More than 46% of Florida’s inmates tested at or below a 5th grade education level.
This is why we’re needed.
Project 180, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is a reentry program for male prisoners in Florida. Our goal is to reduce the impact of repeat offenders upon public safety, public spending, Florida families and individual lives. We are modeled after a Congressionally-endorsed program which for 30 years has successfully assisted thousands of former offenders reenter the community. Upon opening, we will feature a two year, highly structured, 24/7 clean and sober residential environment, marketable job skill training, academic education, rehabilitation and safe, slow reintegration into the community
