Our mission is to mobilize you toward yours.

Mission to Mobilization is committed to helping individuals, organizations and communities erase the stigma of incarceration while strengthening social bonds that lead to productive and healthy citizenship for all 

We work with corrections officials, corporate employers, for-profit and nonprofit social-support organizations and faith communities in training designed to:

  • Lead jail and prison inmates in personal development prior to release
  • Assist returning citizens in strengthening skills as they rejoin the workforce and their local communities
  • Alter public perceptions of returning citizens to remove obstacles that can lead to recidivism
  • Develop leaders working to improve overall community strength and well being

Mission to Mobilization services and tools for change

Our exclusive support-based services and tools provide practical, real-world solutions for effective returning citizen re-entry and improved community reception.

Our services include:

  • Resourced & Released, a self-development training program for jail and prison inmates; facilitated by Mission to Mobilization experts or by those using our facilitator’s guide
  • Life Groups, a self-development program for returning citizens and their immediate supporters; facilitated by Mission to Mobilization experts or by those using our facilitator’s guide
  • The MTM EXperience, a facilitated, participation-based workshop for “outmates” — employers, teachers, healthcare experts, human-services workers, ministers, neighbors and all community members — that simulates the challenges returning citizens meet upon release
  • Leadership development, volunteer-management training, consulting and speaking for corrections specialists, corporate employers, community-support organizations (for profit and nonprofit) and faith-based organizations to carry out successful returning citizen integration and social transformation
