New Start Project believes that we must educate and mobilize re-entry residents and community members through leadership development and policy advocacy. New Start Project is committed to building leaders and building awareness in communities in the Boston Metro area around policies that hinder successful reintegration.
Expanding dialogues between community members about re-entry barriers to employment, housing, and substance abuse treatment. They will also educate and mobilize community members to engage local, state and federal elected officials, housing agencies and employers for access to housing, employment, substance abuse treatment, and to advocate for just and humane criminal justice polices.
Organizational LEADERSHIP Training
