A new direction after prison

Creating an opportunity for success after prison where one doesn’t currently exist

A program of cognitive behavioral classes, case management, transitional work, and job placement

The Problem

The U.S. prison system is broken

$80B

Amount the U.S. spends on prisons each year

700%

Increase in the prison population since the 1970’s

62%

Percent of people re-arrested within three years of release

Working with men at the highest risk of rearrest, Turn90 offers an evidence-informed model of prison reentry that is reducing national recidivism rates by two-thirds.

We combine cognitive-behavioral classes, case management, and on-site transitional work in the Turn90 Print Shop to create an opportunity for success after prison where one doesn’t currently exist. Every graduate is placed in a job with competitive wages, benefits, and potential for advancement.

Turn90 hailed as a promising program with the potential to

change the whole criminal justice system.

Slide 2

Before I came to Turn90 I’d almost lost hope. Now I’m learning things I wish someone taught me when I was younger – like how to think in the right way and brainstorm before making a decision.

Turn90 is the best thing that’s happened to me in a long time.

Turn90 selected as one of twenty organizations nationally to receive a grant from Boeing

in support of its work on racial equity and social justice.

Slide 4

One person who leaves prison and doesn’t go back is a win.

Hundreds of thousands of people who never return is a game-changer in the effort to reform our criminal justice system.
