A new direction after prison

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

A program of group therapy, individual case-management, transitional employment, and job placement

The Problem

The U.S. prison system is broken


Amount the U.S. spends on prisons each year


Increase in the prison population since the 1970’s


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 four months of cognitive behavioral therapy, case management, and on-site transitional employment 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

Slide 1

Turn90 hailed as a promising program with the potential to

"change the whole criminal justice system."

Sally Yates
Former U.S. Attorney General
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 Graduate
Slide 3

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."

Amy Barch, Turn90 Founder
