Support Our Work
We are about to purchase our first home in Indianapolis for women returning from prison! We received a grant from the SAFE Housing Network to make the purchase, but we need your help in finishing some necessary renovations. One of our most devoted volunteers has offered to match all donations before the end of the year, up to $10,000. If we reach that goal, we will be ready to accept our first women in the new year! Donations of any amount would be cause for celebration. Thank you!
Constructing our Future (COF) welcomes back previously incarcerated women who have demonstrated a sincere desire to be independent, law abiding citizens upon their return by providing a safe, affordable place to live immediately upon release and a path to permanent, stable housing.
COF surrounds the newly released woman with other women who have taken a similar journey and it prepares them for livable wage jobs, independent living, and family reintegration through: mentorships; connections with necessary resources; assistance with financial, social, and job skills; and access to education, recovery and mental health services.
COF also advocates for public policies that support full reintegration of previously incarcerated women.
