Prisoner Reentry Network (PRN) was founded to support individuals anticipating release from prison by providing information and resources to individuals anticipating release from prison.
The PRN provides directions home, information on obtaining identification and social services, and connections to service providers on the outside. PRN also supports individuals each week through the Hope for Lifers program, a program organized and run by prisoners committed to life sentences inside San Quentin State Prison. For example, as part of its “Directions Home” project, PRN called all of CA’s prisons to determine where they take individuals when they are released.
If you know someone anticipating release from prison, feel free to ask what PRN can do for them.
