Here are some suggestions for getting involved through social justice activities – either learning more about the criminal legal system and its impacts on those involved, or by contacting a legislator to advocate for change.
Reentry is more than employment or housing searches, it’s also getting out, socializing and having fun. Inside Out had a movie night on Friday where we watched Top Gun: Maverick, ate popcorn, pizza, and homemade cake and cookies thanks to our wonderful volunteers! #reentry #reentrymatters #formerlyincarcerated #returningcitizens
Our volunteer Bill Schiefer won two awards at last month's appreciation event. The volunteer with the most hours in 2023 and the "Golden Toolbelt Award" for all of his incredible work repairing, maintaining, and coordinating contractors for our Reentry House. We are lucky to have Bill as a volunteer at Inside Out! #volunteer #reentrymatters
Shoutout to Peter Nothnagle for winning our volunteer award of Mileage Maestro at last month's volunteer appreciation event. Peter always comes through (and often on very short notice) to give rides to help our members get to important appointments. Thanks Peter!

Have you seen photos of how welcoming and comfortable our Reentry House is? It's all thanks to Jefri Palermo and Emily Schiefer, who were our 2023 "Home" Coming Queens volunteer award winners for generously volunteering their time to make our reentry house a warm and beautifully furnished home. #volunteer #reentry matters
