Defeating recidivism, one success story at a time


The founding of Changing Perceptions was based on one simple principle: To assist men and women in their quest to re-enter both society and the workforce after incarceration.

To many, this may appear a simple task, yet in reality, the obstacles often seem insurmountable.  Tasks like securing housing in a supportive environment, and quality employment are always a challenge, and failure can often end up in a return to prison.

Changing Perceptions employs a Mentor-Mentee relationship-oriented platform that offers support and guidance for new re-entrants. Every peer mentor has personally and previously experienced incarceration – and the challenges associated with navigating re-entry into their communities

At Changing Perceptions, our recidivism rate is an astounding zero percent.  In each case, the success story speaks for itself.
