From reentry kits to essential services, from resource guides to peer-to-peer mentoring, from one side of North Carolina to the other, OurJourney is a new approach to freedom, where being released from prison isn't just an occasion to anticipate, but also a journey to join.
Approximately 19,000 people are released each year from North Carolina’s state prisons. 70% return within 3 years.
Over 95% of all incarcerated individuals in North Carolina will return to our communities at some point.
The opioid overdose death rate is 4 times higher during the first 2 weeks of release than it is for the general public.
Our Journey Reentry Kit
A handy reentry kit provides essential guides and goodies for the initial days of prison reentry. The OurJourney First Aid Reentry Kit program includes a package given to men on their release dates to help them as they transition from prison to freedom, from their past life to their Best Life.
Designed, created and assembled by formerly incarcerated individuals.
Our Journey's Reentry Kit has helped 150+ formely incarcerated citizens by supporting them in their initial reentry days.
