Myle's Value Case Study - Full Version

Future Hope was incorporated in 2011. It builds on the work of its founders and supports men, who demonstrate commitment in their own rehabilitation, during their time of incarceration and once they return to the community. They are still at risk upon release, in need of social support, as well as safe and affordable housing.
Most of those referred to Future Hope begin their journey with the Next Step program where they are provided
withencouragement, hope and peer support during incarceration and upon release. Individuals transitioning to living in community can access Quixote House, a safe, affordable, and substance-free housing environment providing
accompaniment, structure, guidance, encouragement, and community-living peer support through an Intentional Community Residential Program.
At Massie House, residents can continue to live the values of intentional community while receiving affordable and independent transitional housing. CLICK ON DOCUMENT`
