The Turn90 approach

A customized program of cognitive behavioral classes and transitional work

A new direction after prison

  • Participants are men at the highest risk of re-arrest who have multiple barriers to reintegrating into their communities

  • Front line services are delivered by credible messengers: graduates of the Turn90 program

  • One-on-one supportive service sessions address individual needs such as identification, transportation, and housing.

  • The program combines intensive cognitive behavioral classes and transitional work in a single location to amplify the change process

  • Men are paid for their time in daily cognitive behavioral classes and to work in Turn90’s screen-printing social enterprise.

  • Graduates are placed into jobs with competitive wages, benefits, and opportunity for advancement.

A path for success

Winard grew up in circumstances many people can’t imagine. No running water, no electricity, not enough food. He turned to the streets to escape poverty and landed in prison for eight years. After his release, Winard wanted something different, but didn’t know how to change. Turn90 helped him find a new direction after prison.
