Redeem- Her: Help Us Help Them
Organized by: Marcell Del Corpo
Redeem-Her, a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, is a collective of women who have been in prison. Redeem-Her was birthed inside the only women’s prison in New Jersey by inmates who sought to change the culture of the institution to one of cooperation, community, and service, where the women’s needs were met by those around them.
But as we were released from the prison back into society, we found that our needs only increased, and remained, by and large, unmet. To this end, Redeem-Her exists to bridge the enormous gap between prison and successful, valued, productive living within the community.
We offer true help and real hope to reentering women by meeting their tangible needs. We provide housing, clothing, food, employment and most important, support from women who’ve been there. Redeem-Her is self sufficient and receives no monies from the state, we rely on our imcome from our stores and personal donations.
Redeem-Her is in desperate need of a vehical to transport the women in our transitional house to all their commitments including supportive meetings.We need to raise money for a mini van or a SUV that can acomadate 8 women
