We love what we do. Philadelphia is home to over 7,000 returning citizens a year. We seek and hope to continue to assist those on their road to redemption through community, respect, tough love and kindness. Philadelphia is our home and there is a great need for compassion. We want to be productive with our compassion as we motivate and provide opportunities for career-driven returning citizens.
PAR-Recycle Works is a nonprofit that provides transitional employment to people returning to the community from prison through an environmentally responsible electronics recycling service.

By providing employees with skills and opportunities, PAR-Recycle Works helps to build safer communities and contribute to stronger families while saving taxpayer money.
