Safer Foundation is one of the nation’s largest nonprofits working tirelessly to disrupt the cycle of recidivism and social injustice in our society. For nearly 50 years, we’ve been a leader in the fight to break down barriers and provide people with arrest and conviction records the opportunity for a second chance. Supporting over 5,000 men, women and youth in attaining gainful employment each year, we help people build better lives, stronger families and safer communities.


At Safer Foundation, we believe everyone deserves a second chance — especially people with arrest and conviction records. We provide a safe place to help courageous people discover and foster their untapped potential. Our holistic approach includes job training and placement, education assistance, behavioral health services, housing and community engagement, as well as policy and advocacy work. Whether it’s getting an ID, an updated resume, a high school equivalency diploma, transitional job, permanent employment, or even obtaining industry recognized credentials — we are there every step of the way. Through our proven methods and individualized care, we help people thrive and build a future they never thought possible.
