Executive Director Paul Solomon






Dear Friends,

We have been super busy the past few months, working hard to help put reentry on the national map and to have a positive impact on public safety in Oregon. At home, we are kicking into high gear with The Oaks at 14th housing development underway and a new approach to our Mentorship Program. Many of our staff attended the Second Chance Act Conference in DC, where we learned about what’s happening with reentry on a national level and I presented on housing for people convicted of sex offenses.

At the Second Chance Act conference, I had the good fortune to meet Glenn Martin, the founding director of JustLeadershipUSA (JLUSA). I invited Glenn to be the keynote speaker for our spring fundraising gala, and he graciously accepted. The gala is on Friday, May 20 from 5 to 9 pm at Venue 252 at 252 Lawrence St. The venue is modern and bright with lots of free parking. In addition to remarks from Glenn, we will have a live and silent auction and a video of our successful program participants. The night is going to be fun and I urge you to support the great work we do by attending.
