Concordance was founded by a former banker from Wells Fargo and has effectively engaged the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and a variety of banks, law firms and private sector companies.
Exodus, a community-based organization in East Harlem, takes a holistic approach to reentry, guiding participants through six areas of healing: family and relationships, employment, education, health and fitness, community involvement and spirituality, and stresses the importance of trauma-informed care. The majority of its staff and leadership were formerly justice involved.

Living Redemption aims to support young people through transformative mentoring focused on healing, restoration, and sustainable personal and professional growth.
Roca is based in Boston and works with traumatized young adults at the center of urban violence. Their model is to develop a foundation for change, teach cognitive behavioral therapy, and provide tailored employment, education and life skills programs over a period of 4 years, and to continue to show up, even during setbacks.
