Our wellness program Empowering a stronger you is based on the fundamental principle of support. The need for support while incarcerated is vital for success back into our communities.
New Chances provides books for those behind bars, writing materials, learning curriculum, fitness challenges, inspirational posters, photos and more. We follow the guidelines of what is allowed by each facility, but will send women and juveniles what they need to keep their mind, body, and soul strong. If you or someone you know is in need we are here to help, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
At New Chances we also stay in contact from before, during, and after incarceration and assist with staying connected with family, friends, and children. Insuring that holidays, birthdays, and life's moments are not forgotten.
At New Chances our Looking Sharp for a Fresh Start program sponsors clothing drives, collecting clothes and accessories for our clients to feel and look good inside and out for job interviews, career fairs, training and networking events. We look to empower women and youth who have been affected by incarceration.
New Chances also collects donations of baby, children's and teen clothes as well, in order to provide support and assistance to children who have been impacted by the effects of one or both parents being incarcerated. Children are the collateral damage of mass incarceration and at New Chances we want to insure that everyone of the 2.7 million children in America who are affected by incarceration are not forgotten and receive the love, support, and resources they deserve.
Many Women and Youth leave prison and jail with nothing and no money to purchase basic hygiene necessities. At New Chances we provide Comeback Bags, providing the basic needs for successful re-entry. It is critical to immediately show these women and youth that they matter and they have the support they need to be successful after incarceration. We want to change lives from day one, making women, youth, and our communities stronger.
We are always looking for new sponsors and donations to fill our Comeback Bags, If you want join us in changing lives one comeback at a time, click the get involved link on this site or email email@example.com

New Chances supports Women and Youth in building the skills to get a fresh start on the outside. Criminal Records make it difficult to find employment, and if you can't find employment then create it yourself. New Chances offers Game Changers an Entrepreneur Academy for Women and Youth to launch their own business. We help women and youth you have been incarcerated create their own path to financial freedom.
We also have a youth entrepreneur program that focuses on breaking the cycle of incarceration by working with youth who have been impacted by incarceration because one or both parents have been in the system. Helping them to create a better future for themselves and future generations by starting their own business or gaining skills and education to pursue career goals.
This more than just starting a business program but restarting your life program.
New Chances offers a community of support, we are partners for life. Our commitment is not to help those we serve finish a 10 week class or check a box, just to walk away and say good luck. We are a community that empowers and supports those affected by mass incarceration. We are here for the long hall, to insure that the women and youth in our communities have long term success.
We have a mentorship program for women and youth and we sponsor free networking events in order to promote community and to help those we serve to collaborate with other entrepreneurs, to network for future job opportunities and find ways to give back. Part of our program at New Chances is to give back to our communities.
If you are looking for a mentor or would like to be a mentor for one of our many women and youth in need, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
