Formerly incarcerated individuals face numerous interconnected challenges upon release that make their journey toward successful community reintegration extremely difficult. Lack of financial resources or a social network can make this process even more challenging. We support programs that accomplish the following types of initiatives:
“COVID-19 has further intensified the challenges faced by people being released from jails and prisons, who lack access to housing and other supports,” said Neill Coleman, Chief Philanthropy Officer at Trinity. “The pandemic is magnifying the pernicious interconnection between cycles of incarceration and homelessness. With support from the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation, Trinity’s programs are designed to break these cycles and advance new visions and just alternatives that can heal our city.”

Enhancing/expanding a re-entry support program in Tompkins County.
