Founded in 2011 the mission of the Starts Within Organization is to significantly decrease the recidivism rate by addressing reentry barriers from a first-hand perspective. We provide education and mentoring initiatives that address finance, parenting, relationships, inter-personal skills, workforce development and entrepreneurship to aide in a realized and sustained transition.
Before change can be seen externally, an individual’s value must be increased internally resulting in a truly restored citizen that benefits communities, economies, and other societal structures.
The Commission Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 13, 2021 from 10:00 am. – 12:00 p.m. It will be a Virtual Microsoft Teams Meeting.
