The Harriet Tubman Foundation aims to address the needs of small grassroots organizations that serve their local communities. The program offers various types of support to these organizations, including grant writing assistance, program guidance, infrastructure development, training, and maintaining quality standards.
One of the key aspects of the program is its emphasis on professional development, enabling senior professionals to leverage their understanding of cultural contexts to lead the design and implementation of economic resilience strategies. This technical assistance and capacity building are particularly important for underfunded communities that are disproportionately impacted by structural racism. The program aims to empower these communities and address the disparities they face.
Currently, there are over 13,000 adults incarcerated in state prison facilities, with a high percentage projected to eventually return to our communities. Recognizing the profound impact on families, with half of these individuals being parents, successful reentry initiatives are vital. Furthermore, the state's capacity to accommodate incarcerated individuals was already exceeded prior to the pandemic, necessitating comprehensive reentry strategies.
The Foundation is a holistic program dedicated to empowering justice-involved individuals in Washington to successfully reintegrate into society. By offering comprehensive peer navigation services, monetary support in essential domains, and a focus on life stabilization, career readiness, and employment, the program aims to reduce recidivism rates and increase self-sufficiency. To tackle the pressing challenges faced by justice-involved individuals, our project approach and methodology will combine grassroots initiatives with evidence-based practices. By incorporating the expertise and knowledge of local organizations and community members, we will create a program that is responsive to the specific needs of the individuals we serve.
