Date grant awarded: 03/05/2018

“Opening Doors to Success: Navigating Barriers to Reentry” is a Baltimore-based project envisioned to address legal barriers for reentering citizens. In partnership with The Center for Sustainable and Just Communities, a 501(c)(3), and Blake Trettien, a civil rights attorney and founder of Baltimore Resilience Project, they will develop a web-based resource that will provide educational information, checklists, legal documents and “how-to” instructions for self-advocacy to address the policy-driven barriers to employment, housing, family reunification, and financial stability that hinder successful reentry. This project grew from several years of discussions with returning women, revealing the few resources available to navigate these barriers, while video-documenting their unique challenges as they worked to become productive and valued members of their communities.
