A few of our stories:

Maxwell was incarcerated at Coffeewood Correctional Center in Culpeper VA and returning to live in northern Virginia. Maxwell completed OAR’s Intensive Reentry Program and recently sent the following note: “OAR has been a huge support to my family. OAR connected with my family and got to know them while I was in prison. When I got out, OAR helped bring my family back together and out of homelessness. OAR helped us find housing, furnished the house including furniture for our kids, helped me find a job, helped me buy a car for my commute. OAR helped in so many ways that I could never list them all. My family is all together now, under one roof, because of OAR.” Maxwell, Former Reentry Participant

"Watching someone fragile and unsure of themselves all of a sudden have a light bulb go off in their head and how all the OAR programs and support comes together is a wonderful thing to witness." Susan K., OAR Volunteer

"Metro and even the bus are incredibly expensive. I have nothing, no money. I would have been lost without OAR helping me out with tokens and fare cards." Robert J., OAR participant
