On September 10, 2022, Redemption Housing is excited to partner with fellow members of the Philadelphia Reentry Coalition to host the third Day One Challenge, returning after a two-year pandemic intermission.


Date/ Time

September 10, 2022, 9:30AM – 1:30PM


Each year, approximately 25,000 people return to Philadelphia from incarceration, often struggling with the same question: “What now?”


Returning citizens face a lifetime of barriers, but the first few days and weeks are particularly daunting. They are released from prison with questions about where they are going to live, how they might support themselves, and where they might find help.


This three-hour immersion experience will place you “in the shoes” of Philadelphia’s returning citizens. Experience a glimpse of the first days and weeks that follow their release.


To complete the Day One Challenge, you will work with other participants to find employment and educational opportunities, obtain your state IDs, and find a place to sleep until you can “find your footing.”


This experience will help you gain a greater understanding of the challenges that await returning citizens, give you a greater appreciation for the variety of supports offered by Philadelphia’s nonprofit service providers, and help you to see how Redemption Housing complements the amazing work that is already being accomplished in your city!
