What I have learned here at It Takes A Village Foundation Reentry Program, is how to not let my past define my future or who I am. I am better than my past. I learned so much here, from making resumes to properly preparing for a job interview. If you are someone who really wants to do something different, then this program is the place to start.

From my first day to my last day, I have truly enjoyed it. Everyone here is polite, considerate and kind. They give you the tools you need to succeed along with resume writing skills, money management, job readiness skills, mental health awareness and even housing, if you need it. I’ve learned a lot here in the short time I was here. I would recommend it to anyone who might need help getting ahead in what they want to do in life.

When you know better, you do better.

“It was a genuine program that helped me get to where I needed to be after being incarcerated. It gave me a sense of purpose. I recommend this program to everyone coming home and anybody that needs help. Dr. Whitehead will set you in the right direction! “

Help the It Takes A Village Foundation Re-Entry Program

True rehabilitation starts with the mind and sometimes the distractions around us make us lose focus on manifesting the goals of greatness within our homes, families, and communities.

We believe that each one teaches one a good mentality.

To date, 3,127 individuals have successfully completed our program and more are being added daily.  These classes are a free service to the community whether the individual is incarcerated or free, being systematically trapped in a cycle of recidivism is a mentality.

In doing this work we have found that it truly does take a village to manifest the community we want to see and be therefore no donation is to small or large, we are planting seeds of future success in our community and for our community.  Please donate today.
