Turn90 creates an opportunity for success after prison where one doesn't currently exist and aims to disrupt generational cycles of incarceration nationwide.
Individuals leaving prison have needs unique to their life histories, risk factors and reentry challenges. Networks of criminal associates, lifestyle addictions, and norms of violence combine with poverty, felony labels, and a lack of job skills and education to create a very challenging situation at prison’s door.
Turn90 is a specialized solution to solve a complex problem.
We operate two reentry centers in South Carolina, with a third opening in 2024. Making a deep investment in a person’s emotional, social, behavioral and financial well-being gives them the skills to manage life differently, a pathway to legal employment, and an offramp from the incarceration cycle.
Since inception, hundreds have enrolled. 78% of graduates remain arrest-free, reducing national rates by two-thirds. 89% of graduates remain employed 90 days or more; In 2023, Turn90 hired 135 men.
Turn90’s work in South Carolina is part of a bigger vision.
Our goal is to create a model of prison reentry proven to reduce recidivism that can be replicated nationwide – something which has never been done.
