How your Donation helps

Every day, thousands of men and women are released from incarceration and face the daunting challenge of starting anew. Unfortunately, many of them end up right back where they started.

At Changing Perceptions, we are dedicated to fighting recidivism and creating a better future for those seeking a new life. However, we cannot do it alone. Our efforts include peer support, quality housing, food, and employment. We strive to offer these resources to those in need every day.

Your donation, no matter how big or small, can make a significant impact and help us continue our mission. We need your help now more than ever. Together, we can make a difference in society and help those who need it most.
