Transition Professionals

$300 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 5 people in 53 months
Since our inception, Transition Professionals has survived on private donations of clothing, furniture and monetary funding. As our organization has grown, we have expended hundreds of dollars on items needed to support returning citizens to their communities from jail or prison.

Our efforts at present are to raise funds to open a Sober House, which will provide transitional housing to single male former offenders who are homeless and not eligible for county shelter. It is our hopes that by raising $50,000 we can open and house up to 20 individuals while they search for employment and get back on their feet. While we intend to apply for grants and subsidies through the federal and state government, our organization is still fairly new.

We must depend on the generosity of others who believe that helping to reduce recidivism within the criminal justice system will help us all.

We have applied for our IRS 501(c)3 designation as a tax-exempt organization and expect to receive it soon. In the meantime, any donation, $5, $10 or more, is appreciated.
