Re-entry Assistance, Mutual Aid, and Community Engagement
"We sponsor and teach programs that mentor, educate and empower individuals in and around the community."
We help people returning home after release from prison in finding jobs, housing, and getting back onto their feet. We sponsor and teach programs that mentor, educate and empower individuals in and around the community, from students in school to women staying in the Lucy Baney house.
WAMI also regularly hosts events and drives for events such as our annual backpack event, where we support families and young people in our community by providing book bags and other necessary school supplies. During the COVID-19 Pandemic, we brought 800 care packages to our sisters at the York Correctional Institute, filled with necessary items that they are deprived from, like menstrual products and hand sanitizer.
WHY IS THIS PROJECT IMPORTANT?
WAMI works as hard as possible, using our resources, to help whomever we can. We donate resources, clothing, money, food, and time to anyone needing it. From paying bail for a proceeding to providing the money to buy resources for a newborn baby, WAMI is willing to help.
