Human Works Foundation is taking a proactive, holistic stance: committed to reducing recidivism by redefining reentry for our justice-impacted and transitional population. Our EMPOWER programs are grounded in a belief in the intrinsic dignity and worth of each person, guiding trauma-impacted folks in discovering their own resilience, while also building the skills associated with healthy social, emotional, and identity development.  By nurturing a sense of belonging and purpose, the program seeks to disrupt the cycle of recidivism and empower participants to become agents of positive change within their communities.



Human Works Foundation utilizes the Predictive Index assessment (PI) as a coaching tool with all our incredible RISEUP participants! This comprehensive assessment provides insight into the drives, motivations, and needs in the workplace, giving our students the tools they need to succeed on an emotional, practical, and cognitive level in their chosen career.
