R2R – Results
In the first 2 years of the program, the Reentry to Resilience (R2R) program has seen three big outcomes:
- Reduced recidivism. Less than 7 percent of our youth return to the criminal justice system.
- Life-changing opportunities with generational impact. Our program has shown youth and their parents ways to accomplish things they had only dreamed about, such as the possibility of going to college, obtaining scholarships, and reaching goals that change lives and have generational impacts.
- Transformed mindsets and sense of self. Many of our youth have had adverse childhood experiences that affect them as they grow up and can cause them to behave in ways that lessen their sense of self-respect and self-worth. R2R has watched youth shift their mindset to that of feeling worthy and having value.
