Since 2010, Community College of Philadelphia's Reentry Support Project has worked to foster post-secondary education enrollment, retention, and success among adults with criminal records.
By achieving its mission, the Reentry Support Project not only increases local higher education certificate and degree attainment, but supports public safety, community health, and reducing recidivism throughout Philadelphia, PA.
