About The Safe Return Project

The Safe Return Project is dedicated to creating an equitable and healthy environment for Contra Costa County resident’s 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 of those returning home from incarceration, to transform systems that impact those returning home from incarceration, and to shift the dominate 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 etc. for people coming home to our communities will give them a fighting chance at a successful reintegration. Our commitment is to true public safety in the form of multifaceted community based best practices at the grassroots level.
