Potential is a platform designed to provide the presently incarcerated with avenues toward security and employment after release. We work inside detention centers and with community members outside to facilitate the entire re-entry process — we direct the recently released to essential community services and skills training programs, and we connect local employers with ready-to-work talent from which they benefit both financially and culturally.
