Home for Good is the Philadelphia Reentry Coalition’s 5-‐year countywide collective action plan to improve reentry in Philadelphia. In all, more than a hundred stakeholders met over the course of six months to develop this plan.
About the PRC
The Coalition formed in 2012, when leadership from the federal, state and local levels representing the judiciary, corrections, probation, defense, prosecution and other key public stakeholders met to address a growing concern around reentry coordination efforts in Philadelphia. In March of 2015, the Coalition merged efforts with Philly PRISM, a collective impact initiative formed in 2014 with similar goals of improving Philadelphia’s reentry systems through stakeholder collaboration. The Coalition now includes over 20 county, 6 federal, and 3 state agencies, 4 universities, and over a dozen non-profit organizations.
