We Are Hiring!


The Safe Return Project is dedicated to creating an equitable and healthy environment for Contra Costa County residents, young and old, returning home to their communities from incarceration. Safe Return Project members engage the community through research and community organizing. Our goal is to educate our communities on the needs and to transform systems that impact those returning home from incarceration; and to shift the dominant narratives in communities that receive and serve men, women, and youth coming home from incarceration from one of fear to one of acceptance and hope. The Safe Return Project believes that breaking down barriers to employment, housing, and family reunification for people coming home to our communities will give them a fighting chance at successful reintegration. Our commitment is to true public safety in the form of the best, multifaceted community-based practices at the grassroots level.

Organizational Culture

At Safe Return, we build an intentional culture that centers on healing, self-sufficiency, accountability, and liberation. When we envision a “safe return” for those coming out of incarceration, we see true public safety achieved in the form of multifaceted community-based best practices at the grassroots level. We are committed to creating spaces where all voices are heard, and all people are embraced for their wholeness.
