Prison Reentry Services

About us

Project Hope Center Inc. (PHC) is a non-profit community benefit corporation that provides services and support to female victims, survivors and families affected by domestic violence and sexual abuse. PHC provides rehabilitative and reentry services for female individuals enrolled in the New Hope Reentry Program inside Folsom Women's Facility State Prison. 

New Hope Reentry Program was created by Sandra Munoz-Braidman in 2014 in response to the increasing reentry needs after incarcerated inmates are released from California correctional facilities and transition back into communities.  PHC has grown to become an organization to service female victims, and support survivors and families affected by domestic violence and sexual abuse.

New Hope Reentry Program is a two-year reentry program which starts inside Folsom Women's Facility State Prison.  PHC Volunteers provide group and one-to-one reentry planning, mentoring, and counseling for our participants (inmates).  In addition, PHC Volunteers provide a range of comprehensive individualized reentry needs for our participants.  It is our objective that our participants will have a successful transition back into community along with vocational training, employment, counseling, mentoring and education.
