The first 72 hours of a person’s released from incarceration are some of their most vulnerable hours. When there is not adequate support during this initial phase of reentry, our returning neighbors often respond out of desperation of need instead of hope for a better future. Many fall down in the gap without the presence of a caring handoff back into community.
Join 72-Hour Pack Pilot Program developers to learn how you or your church can help fill reentry gaps with both tangible help and hopeful presence by participating in current pilot projects or starting your own. 72-Hour Packs are more than supplying returning neighbors with essential self-care items . They are a pathway to restoring dignity, identity, safety, and self-worth.
