A PROGRAM LIKE OURS IS SO IMPORTANT
The Reason Why We Care So Much

HOUSING HAS BEEN A PROBLEM FOR A LONG TIME. THE REASON WE CARE SO MUCH IS ITS IMPORTANT THAT THE DEMOGRAPHICS WE SERVE SUCCEED. WE DEAL WITH A POPULATION THAT SOCIETY IN AND OF ITSELF, WOULD SIMPLY WRITE OFF. WE AIM TO AID THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO DEDICATE THEMSELVES TO CHANGE, HOUSING IS FUNDAMENTAL TO THAT CHANGE. FINDING STEADY EMPLOYMENT, DOING WELL IN SCHOOL ARE THINGS OUR CLIENTS SHOULD BE MOST CONCERNED WITH. GIVEN OUR MODEST MISSION, AND THE CHALLENGES OUR CLIENTS FACE; WHEN ONE TRANSITIONS SUCCESSFULLY, ITS AS THOUGH WE'VE CROSSED THE FINISH LINE YET AGAIN.

The homeless rate is growing annually. Help those in need get their life in order.

Homeless

Housing has always been an issue in major Metropolitan cities. In the case of San Francisco, blue-collar workers were forced to give way to the tech industry and in other neighborhoods; gentrification was the big elephant in the room. As a result, the housing landscape changed dramatically. Those once employed, earning living wages and living moderately well, not rich mind you, but not quit “paycheck to paycheck” were now forced to relocate as they saw their jobs outsourced or simply were laid off indefinitely. In addition, we now have a population of transients who have made their way here looking for services only to find little or none available. Most give up hope and decide to hunker down and settle in. For that reason and others, we now have a burgeoning housing crisis. A city with so much wealth has turned its back and pushed out those responsible for holding it up. How do you remedy that

Post Release Housing

A majority of those coming out of prison after spending considerable time inside have the most difficulty finding somewhere to live. In addition to the stereotype of being an “Ex-Con” many have little to no real employment history or credit history. They have minimum resources available to them and there is a considerable wait for what exists. Some are allowed to stay in a half way house where they must find a job. Once a job is found 25-30% of the gross is given to the half way house for administrative fees and a great portion of the balance goes to offset any fines accrued upon conviction. Our housing program would allow for those individuals recently released an opportunity to go back to school, obtain a skill, with the hopes of earning a decent income. The key here is the ability to maintain a roof over their head that is sustainable because it’s truly affordable.?

Student Housing

This marginalized population seeking to become students, consists of those recently released from prison or other form of corrections after spending a moderate, considerable or quite lengthy amount of time incarcerated. Due to current housing rental practices its almost impossible for them to qualify. Other obstacles such as work history and credit worthiness present dilemmas that must be overcome. Because of this and the fact that upon release most individuals are required to stay at a halfway house (requiring them to pay 25%-30% aka pay 2 stay) and the need to earn money, some lose sight of their educational goals and pursue full time employ. Others outright opt to work and cast their plans for education aside altogether severely hindering their ability to earn a higher income as a result of the education they’ve received.

College students have more important things to worry about other than housing.

Project Rebound is for those reformed and released into society seeking an education.

"Those guys put in the work."

On the day I visited Project Rebound’s office, Bell was fielding calls from nervous students about required forms and deadlines to select classes. School was starting the following day, and the 30 or so new program participants weren’t entirely sure what to expect. Bell answered them all calmly but firmly. No excuses, but no prejudgments or stereotypes either.

“They have a lot to say,” Bell said, of the students, who so often were overlooked by counselors and others as teenagers. Grown men have collapsed into tears in his office, he said, when they finally realize they can earn degrees. “They thought something was wrong with them,” he said.
