A New Way of Life Re-Entry Project

Vision: ANWOL works to empower, organize, and mobilize formerly incarcerated people as advocates for social change, by providing housing and re-entry programs, case management, pro bono legal services, advocacy, policy development, family reunification, and individual healing work.

Impact: 1,000+ women/children have found safety and support in re-entry homes; 300+ women have been reunited with their children; 3,500+ formerly homeless people have acquired items needed to establish their own homes; since its inception in 2007, ANWOL’s legal department has provided pro bono services to thousands and more.
