When I left 72 Hour Fund I felt like a new person, inside and out. The love and acceptance I felt was nothing short of life-changing.
— Teresa S.

No matter how tough an inmate is inside, the thought of “being on the street” is scary.

After release, ex-offenders are anxious and unsure about the basics of life. Essentials like new cloths, hygiene items, I.D cards and a job seem like mountains to be climbed. Predators selling drugs and offering an easy return to the old lifestyles are everywhere.

72 Hour Fund offers vital, solid, hands-on assistance for former inmates as they take positive steps towards successful reintegration. Causal/dressy, winter or summer clothes, bus tokens or hygiene items are all small “cups of cold water” (see Matthew 10:42) that restore. These basic essentials are available on a needs-driven basis for all who make an appointment, or simply drop in.

72 Hour Fund Reduces Recidivism

From 2013-2017, nearly 10,000
ex-offenders have come through the 72 Hour Fund. Less than 12.2% of men and 10.3% of women who have received our assistance during this five year period have gone back to a Colorado prison.
