Our Mission

END MASS INCARCERATION
Refoundry aims to reduce the 2.2 million U.S. prison population and 75% recidivism rate by empowering people most affected by our criminal justice system to transform their lives and become leaders and economic engines in their communities.

 

What we do


TRAINING and EDUCATION
Refoundry trains formerly incarcerated people to repurpose discarded materials into home furnishings and mentors them into their own business and/or career track. As part of the curriculum, we provide transitional services, life skills training, financial education, and business principles.

Impact

With pilot programs in Los Angeles and Brooklyn, Refoundry has helped participants launch 10 businesses that now employ over 150 people from their respective communities.

 

Creating opportunities for success

 
 
 
 
 

"I was a handyman making $14/hour. Now I own my own business, employ 22 people from my community – using what I learned to help two start their own shops – and hit $2 million in sales last year. Best of all, I send my two oldest children to college, and my youngest to private school."
