Project 180’s focus on clean-and-sober housing, job skill training, academic education, and establishing a supportive social network is a logical solution to the difficult challenges formerly incarcerated citizens face when they reenter our communities.

“Staying clean and sober, getting a job and earning a living, having a driver’s license or other form of identity, becoming one with the civic standards of a healthy and stable community, and having a roof over our heads are all advantages many of us take for granted. Project 180 helps those returning to society from behind bars with all of this in a smart, intelligent, and community-supportive way. I endorse their program.”

Project 180 is a unique and innovative project that will afford formerly incarcerated men and women the hope, compassion, skills set and the opportunity for restoration required to ensure a successful reentry. It is clear that Florida needs many more community projects like this one.
