|We are a not-for-profit, community-based organization founded in 1998 to provide counseling, employment placement services, housing and other social services to low income people. In 2009, Helping Arms, Inc. was awarded funding through the U.S. Department of Labor to operate a prison reentry initiative in the City of Trenton, New Jersey. We collaborate with a number of community organizations to provide transitional support services to adult offenders, 18 years of age and older, who have been convicted and incarcerated as an adult and who are returning to the greater Trenton area.
Our program provides ex-offenders with case management, employment and educational opportunities, housing services, computer-supported education, drug treatment, mental health referrals and mentoring.
Helping Arm's holistic approach to reentry ensures that each individual's needs are identified and met. Our goal is to assist each client in preparing for, obtaining and sustaining employment.
