Homeward Bound Re-Entry Services
A comprehensive 1-year program for individuals who are leaving state prison.
Safe and stable housing
Housing is the most important part of our re-entry program. We connect you with quality housing where you'll have your own space and a network of support from other individuals in our program.
Finding employment can be one of the most challenging aspects of returning to your community. We can help connect you with quality employment.
Get happy and healthy
Whatever being happy means to you, we'll help you get there. Whether it's fulfilling employment, meeting new friends, or reconnecting with old ones — we’re here to make it happen.
Put prison behind you
Our support network and community partners will help you close out the previous chapter of your life, help you pick up where you left off, or start fresh.
Guaranteed housing for 1-year
The success of our re-entry clients — reconnecting with family, finding employment, and achieving happiness and self-sufficiency — is predicated on safe, stable housing.
We own and operate homes where 6-8 formerly incarcerated individuals can share expenses equally and build a network of support.
Stipends for family
We provide stipends and reimbursements for friends and family who can provide stable housing for our Re-Entry clients.
We help secure rental deposits and rent assistance in private apartments in the Silicon Valley area.
Clients at risk of addiction or those who prefer a sober environment can request to be housed in sober living environments.

Oftentimes it's relatively small things that can have a dramatic effect on an individual's successful re-entry into their community. Small outstanding debts, fees, transportation, and minor medical expenses can become roadblocks.
We designed our comprehensive 1-year program to address both the major aspects of re-entry (employment, family, community) and the important details that are easily and often overlooked.
College & trade school
With the cost of an education continuing to rise, we provide aid depending on your financial need, cost of attendance, and more.
Assistance with education and fees associated with obtaining or replacing a driver license.
Glasses & hearing aid
Being able to see and hear helps clients secure and maintain employment, communicate more effectively, and learn new skills.
We can create a plan that supports finding the best and most affordable transportation for you.
Small debt assistance
The strain of dealing with debt can be emotionally burdensome. We help individuals become and stay debt-free.
Workwear & interviews
We help you look and feel your best by covering up-front costs for interview attire and required on the job personal protective equipment.
Mental health support
You may be reluctant to admit you need support. Don't let the fear of being labeled with a mental illness prevent you from seeking help.
Build a resilient network of support by reconnecting with your family, friends, and community.
