Our Story

In 1980, Cross Lutheran church formed Project RETURN to address the challenge of high recidivism in Milwaukee. For 40 years, our organization has walked alongside ex-incarcerated people by providing assistance with employment, housing, and counseling. We help men and women leaving prison make a positive and permanent return to the community. Often people come to Project RETURN in a time of crisis, not looking beyond their immediate needs. Our experienced staff membersโ€”most of whom are formerly incarcerated individualsโ€”work one-on-one with clients, helping them to navigate through the moment and then to look beyond that situation to โ€œnext steps.โ€

Whether a client needs assistance with housing or simply someone to vent to, they are welcomed at Project RETURN.

โ€œWe donโ€™t treat people like they are criminals. We treat people like they are humans,โ€ said Teri Woodley, the Office Manager.
