If You Had Another Chance
Captured in its name, OpenDoors strives for a community across Rhode Island welcoming and accepting of individuals regardless of their backgrounds. OpenDoors works with incarcerated indivudals prior to their release to develop a discharge plan and connects formerly incarcerated individuals with resources necessary for success to integrate these indivduals into the community. In addition to their efforts to reduce recidivism rates, OpenDoors catalyzes policy change to shape a state more accessible for those formerly incarcerated.
Executive Director Sol Rodriguez describes how hard work has opened up opportunities and transformed the lives of formerly incarcerated individuals in Rhode Island.
