Convicted of a crime they didn’t commit. Sent to prison. By some miracle, Exonerated.
Today, countless exonerees need your help to rebuild the lives taken away from them.
Exonerees have no federal guarantee of remuneration or support to help them rebuild their lives.
That’s why we are here, and that’s why we need you. We provide “day one” care packages (food, clothing, cell phones, toiletries), connect exonerees to desperately needed social service and mental health resources and bring them together so that they can help one another.
It costs, on average, $30,000 in the first year to help an exoneree rebuild their life.
Your monthly gift will go a long way in helping them access housing, trade internships, education/certifications, and basic supplies and utilities.
