Best Chance

Best Chance helps formerly incarcerated men lead productive and rewarding lives while significantly reducing recidivism.  We provide vital services, material support, referrals, information and training proven to reduce stress of transitioning to "life on the outside."  Our services are provided by well-trained peers working closely with a broad spectrum of vocational, healthcare, mental health, social welfare, business, spiritual, educational, and motivational volunteers and professionals. This is a Prison re-entry not a Jail re-entry.
