Issues: Economic stability, safety and healing, coalition building

Description: The Transitional Employment Program (TEP) at the Haley House Bakery Café in Roxbury, MA, “seeks to break the cycle of incarceration by supporting people returning home to the community.” It provides employment and training to people who have recently been incarcerated, teaches life skills and financial literacy, and fosters relationships among peers and with the greater community.

In this video we hear from TEP founder Daniel Cordon and manager Jerome Pitts, who talk about the program’s mission and how it works.
