Impact Statement

Project 180 provides services to prisoners and the public, improving life chances for inmates upon release and increasing public awareness of reentry issues that affect the entire community.

Programs for Inmates: Since beginning prison and jail services in late 2014, Project 180 has served over 600 inmates through its workforce education and financial literacy classes. Volunteer CEOs and Financial Literacy Coaches provide inmates with essential information about how to find, obtain and get ahead in felon-friendly industries plus how to improve financial stability.

Why do we teach inmates? Approximately 98% of our students will be released within 180 days; 20% have never held a mainstream job. For their benefit and the sake of community safety, we want them to stabilize and find jobs quickly upon release. Employment develops dignity, provides a stake in mainstream community life and is the number one factor in maintaining a crime-free lifestyle.

Public Education: If you have a family member or close friend who struggles with addiction, you’ve doubtless experienced the anguish and despair of watching helplessly while he or she self-destructs. It’s also likely that your loved one has had contact with jail, prison or law enforcement personnel.

Project 180's 2016 lecture series, Strong Voices/Strong Subjects, addressed "Addiction, Reentry & Recidivism" in April, May and June. The series featured

  • Mary Jeanne Kreek, MD, one of the world's most noted scientists in addictions research
  • a panel of former offenders with addictive diseases and 
  • Jane Dwyer, MSW, LCSW, a Florida State University professor who served five years in prison for DUI Manslaughter. 
Contact us to learn more about or sponsor next year's series, "The Prison Experience."
Project 180's primary focus for 2016 is to build capacity and prepare to open our Residential Program for repeat offenders. The Residential Program is our greatest opportunity to turn lives around. For more information about this initiative, please see the Programs section.
Needs Statement

Be The One! Together we'll open the doors in early 2017. Your contribution can provide

  • $25 personal supplies for two residents: soap, deodorant, razor, shaving cream, shampoo
  • $100 work boots, work gloves, jeans, t-shirt
  • $250 bed frame, box springs, mattress, blankets, pillow and linens for one resident
  • $500 one month's rent
  • $1,000 transportation to work for one year
Background Statement

Project 180’s innovative programs and lecture series provide services and promote opportunities that are vital for offenders.

An essential gap that still needs to be filled is a highly structured, whole-life, lengthy residential program that operates at no cost to offenders or their families. This gap will be filled by Project 180's Residential Center.

Just like everyone else, offenders need safety, stability and a sense of belonging: a home base, a job that pays the bills and a caring community. When reentry is unsuccessful and an offender is unable to attain these things, he inevitably joins the ranks of the homeless and unemployed.

Project 180's long-term residential program is designed to make sure that doesn't happen. We'll provide the life-changing opportunity for residents to engage in our community through collaborations with current and future partners:

  • businesses that provide job skill training and apprenticeships

  • schools that supply academic education

  • other non-profits that offer volunteer experiences and exposure to the arts and humanities

  • governmental agencies to heal distrust and foster a one-community spirit

We invite you to help prevent homelessness and unemployment among reentering offenders. Turn lives around by helping those who are eager for a second chance in Project 180's Residential Program.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

My partnership with Project 180 began in 2014 when I had the opportunity to teach a Financial Literacy course at Hardee Correctional (state prison). What started as a means to complete CRA requirements for my employer turned into a life-changing experience when I saw Project 180’s impact on our students’ lives. It opened my eyes to the struggles they’ll face upon release and the importance of giving them tools to lead productive lives and stay out of prison.

I take a lot of pride in our in-prison courses. In our Financial Literacy course, we teach the basics: the importance of creating a relationship with a financial institution, how to open a checking account and use an ATM card, how to write a check and balance an account. We cover how credit reports work and the impact they have on one’s ability to borrow. This knowledge is second nature to many of us and fundamental to negotiating daily life. I was surprised by the number of inmates who lacked this basic knowledge and am humbled to be able to share it with them.

Our CEO Program is excellent, too. Our volunteer CEOs teach inmates the importance of being prepared for an interview, how to have a mutually beneficial relationship with an employer, become a valued employee and grow within a company.  In both our courses, we emphasize the importance of employment as the number one factor in maintaining a crime-free life. After all, nothing stops a crime like a job.

Financial stability and employment are crucial. So are housing and sobriety. Our ultimate goal is to offer all these factors in a two-year residential program for repeat offenders who are looking for a second chance.

We’ve come a long way this year and are proud of our progress. Project 180 not only encompasses the programs I’ve described but so much more. I invite you to partner with us as we continue to grow and turn lives around.

Statement from the CEO/Executive Director

In 1998, I became interested in working with offenders when listening to an NPR show on the educational disparity between the general population and prisoners. Today, over one-third of Florida’s state prisoners (37.2%) test at a fifth grade literacy level or lower. Back in 1998, for every one Black man in college, five were in prison or jail and the numbers were almost as dismal for Latino men.


The statistics from that radio show changed my life. I took action by volunteering in the San Francisco jail system as the coordinator of a men’s support group. The class took place weekly in a cramped, gray room behind numerous gates and bars at the top of the county courthouse. It was small and crowded but we were all happy to be there.

I never asked about my students’ crimes and they didn’t tell but I learned much later than many of them were influential gang leaders on the outside. As students, they were smart and curious with solid business and management skills even though a number of them could barely read.


Those men, to whom I dedicate my current work, taught me far more than I taught them. I learned that those of us in the mainstream world can be greatly enriched by knowing men like them, despite their crimes, and can learn a lot about our community by listening to the stories of their lives. They have a profoundly different perspective to offer us. They are creative and intelligent and can offer viable answers to some of the community’s most pressing social problems. All we have to do is start the conversation and listen.

Project 180's CEO Program serves 30 to 75 students per class and is all about workforce education. Our CEOs are business owners and workforce agency specialists who deliver practical advice and insider tips on finding and keeping employment in felon-friendly industries like foodservice, construction and IT.
CEOs find this volunteer opportunity meaningful and rewarding. Nancy of Nancy's Bar-B-Q says, "I've been to the prison many times. It feels good to give back and help solve the recidivism problem. It's just common sense to give people the tools they need if we expect them to succeed."
Our students say:
  •  “It’s impossible to express the gratitude of what you offered.”
  •  “Thank you for caring and giving hope to inmates.” 
  •  “You guys are great. Continue doing this, it's very informational.”

Join us! It's a five hour trip; you'll spend about four hours behind razor wire but not behind bars.

Short Term Success
Project 180 has partnered with statistical analyst Steve Phalen, PhD to determine the success of the CEO Program.
Pre-determined measures of success are followed by actual outcomes:
  • A minimum of 65% of inmates will experience a good or excellent increase in knowledge. 74% reported a good or excellent increase.
  • A minimum of 65% of inmates will rate the presentations as being of good or excellent value. 74% reported good or excellent value.
  • A minimum of 75% of CEOs will rate their overall experience as good or excellent. 100% rated the experience as excellent.
  • A minimum of 75% of CEOs will be willing to recommend the experience to other CEOs. 100% were willing to recommend.
  • A minimum of 75% of CEOs will be willing to return to present again. 100% were willing to return.
Long Term Success
The long-term success of the CEO Program ideally would be measured by the number of individuals who were able to find full-time employment because of the information presented in the program. It is not possible at this time for Project 180 to track the employment of individuals who are released from the state prison system.
Anecdotally, administrators at DeSoto and Hardee state prisons report the CEO class motivates offenders to begin thinking employment upon release. Prisoners' feedback is that the class instills much-needed hope and a positive outlook on job-hunting and job acquisition.
Program Success Monitoring
Success is monitored through pre- and post-presentation surveys which are evaluated to track success and improve upon future presentations. Project 180 works with Steve Phalen, PhD, to track and steward our data.
Program Success Examples
Prisoners in this class return to communities throughout Florida. On occasion, an individual will return to the Manasota area. "Bruce" attended a CEO Program in early 2016 and, upon his release, sought out one of our CEOs, Mike, the manager of a local day labor company
In March, Bruce applied for work at Mike's company. He expressed an interest in landscaping so Mike assigned him to a landscaping company. He did well there as a temporary worker and in June, was hired as a full-time employee. Bruce now receives health benefits and was given a raise to $12 an hour. If he continues to do well, Bruce will be promoted to shift supervisor with a raise to $15 an hour and the use of a company car. 
The most effective use of the CEO Program will be to work with the Department of Corrections to find jobs for prisoners prior to release. In the meantime, we are continually seeking state- or nation-wide employers in felon-friendly industries to speak to inmates and encourage them to apply for positions upon release.
Everyone needs safe, stable housing and offenders are no exception. Project 180's current initiative is to open a two year Residential Center for men who are repeat offenders. With marketable job skill training and academic education, our Center is designed with a whole-life approach. After years of building organizational capacity, this program is now within sight thanks to a strong board of directors and strategic partnerships with businesses, visionaries and a network of now-successful former offenders.

Short Term Success
(This program is not yet open.) By the end of each resident's first month, he will have begun working 40 hours a week in a green industry with skill-building and growth opportunities, participate 10 hours weekly in the Academic Program, maintain sobriety, and volunteer 6-8 hours a week at a nonprofit of his choice.
We anticipate that these activities will
  • introduce 100% of residents to a structured lifestyle outside of prison,  
  • provide 80% of residents with new hard and soft job skills including but not limited to the skills associated with sub-assembling air-conditioning units, inventory, ordering, shipping, receiving, following directions, time management and teamwork.
  • provide the opportunity for 100% of residents to improve their literacy levels
  • provide 100% of residents the opportunity to give back to the community through volunteering which has the added benefit of meeting conventional members of the community
Long Term Success
Project 180's goal is to give each resident the opportunity to recover from prison life and turn his life around by
  • stabilizing his living situation
  • providing structure and tight scheduling
  • redirecting errant behavior
  • providing access to job skill training and felon-friendly employers
  • providing access to academic and vocational education with high levels of support during study time
  • providing the opportunity to give back to the community through volunteering
  • setting high yet achievable expectations for behavior, sobriety and personal achievement
  • celebrating successes 
For the public, we anticipate that the Residential Program will
  • increase public safety by reducing recidivism and victimization
  • reduce the economic strain of incarceration upon the community
  • encourage individual, family and societal stability
  • restore potentially productive citizens to the community and workforce
  • incorporate the creativity and productivity of offenders into community life
  • restore trust between citizens
  • save lives
Program Success Monitoring
Success will be monitored through interviews, arrest records and self-reporting surveys with the assistance of an independent research team.
Program Success Examples
Project 180 anticipates the following outcomes:
  1. A minimum of 75% of residents will complete the two year program
  2. 100% of graduates will have a GED or currently marketable vocational skills
  3. 100% of graduates will be competent in each of the following three job skill areas: interpersonal, labor and clerical
  4. A minimum of 80% of graduates will have secured living wage or higher wage employment prior to graduation from the program
  5. A minimum of 80% of graduates will own or have full-time access to a viable mode of transportation upon graduation
  6. 100% of graduates will have secured housing and have a savings account equal to or greater than three months' living expenses.
  7. 100% of graduates will possess a valid Florida driver license or state-issued ID plus a Social Security card
  8. A minimum of 75% of graduates will remain arrest-free for a new crime for a minimum of three years after graduation
One of Project 180's primary areas of focus is to educate the public about the impact of prisoner reentry upon the community and to build a bridge of understanding between offenders and other community members.
To this end, "Strong Voices," Project 180's annual luncheon lecture series takes the discussion about prisoner reentry beyond the walls of the criminal justice system and into the public domain.
Our 2016 series, "Addiction, Reentry & Recidivism," attracted over 100 attendees at each lecture. Speakers included one of the world's foremost researchers in the science of addiction, a panel of former offenders who each have an addictive disease, and a Florida State University professor who spent five years in prison on a DUI Manslaughter charge. Informative, moving and inspirational, it generated numerous discussions in the health and justice arenas in the Manasota area.
Stay tuned for next year's series in April, May and June on "The Prison Experience."

Short Term Success
 The 2016 series, Project 180's most popular yet, was assessed via paper and digital surveys. We asked
  • was this lecture a meaningful educational experience for you?
  • did you learn anything new? (April 1 lecture only)
  • would you recommend that others attend future lectures?
An average of 87% of respondents found the lectures to be a meaningful educational experience. Dr. Kreek's lecture in April was rated the lowest (62% strongly agreed, 28% agreed) yet was the lecture that initiated numerous conversations in the community about addictive disease and medication-assisted therapy. 100% of respondents strongly agreed that the May and June lectures were meaningful educational experiences.
98% of respondents learned something new and 100% recommended that others attend future lectures. 
Survey results from the 2016 series on "Addiction Reentry & Recidivism" were analyzed by independent data analyst and steward Steve Phalen, PhD. 
Long Term Success
The long-term benefits of the series include a more informed populace regarding the prisoner reentry phenomenon and its effects upon the community. Through the lecture series, Project 180 encourages attendees to become active in conversing about and addressing the primary issues that former offenders face: homelessness, unemployment, poverty, substance abuse and illiteracy.
Program Success Monitoring
In 2016, paper surveys were made available at the tables. Digital surveys were sent to all attendees who didn't fill out the paper surveys. Results are currently being tallied for the series.
Program Success Examples
Since its inception in 2014, support for the Strong Voices lecture series has grown dramatically. The audience size has increased by 86%. Sponsorships have increased in number by 57% and in dollar value by 93%.

In partnership with Cadence Bank, IBERIABANK and other finance industry professionals, Project 180 delivers a Financial Literacy Course for inmates using the FDIC Money Smart Program. Depending upon the facility, this course serves up to 20 inmates per class.

Our Financial Literacy Coaches address how to establish, repair and improve credit, borrowing and loans, budgeting, the importance of saving, how to write a check, how to balance a check register and much more.

Rated a "slam-dunk success" by an independent analyst, the course garners comments like these from our inmate students:
  • "This class was jam packed with useful info."
  • "Thank you guys for sharing this advice to me because this was an experience I would have never [had] if you didn't show me how."

Inmate students' comments tell a story about financial literacy. Statistics from their surveys give a glimpse into their lives.

"I never knew what a credit report is. I didn't know that bad credit could keep you from getting housing or even a job." 
  • 20% of our students have never taken part in conventional financial life. 
  • Before class, 69% of our students report that they don't know what a credit report is or how it is used. After class, 97% can read and interpret a credit report and know where to obtain a free copy.
"I learned a lot about what I didn't know. I'm going to take this home and teach my family so we don't have to struggle so hard."  
"I never knew that investing could earn me money." 
  • One out of three of our students made less than $12,000 a year prior to incarceration. Two-thirds made less than $36,000. Poverty is a primary driver of the prison and jail population.
  • Many of our students report that they plan to share the lessons home to combat multi-generational poverty.
Long Term Success Financial literacy leads to financial stability, buy-in to mainstream culture and a chance at achieving the American Dream. Many inmates say they just want to live a normal life. That's pretty hard to do if you don't know the basics of financial management. Our long-term success will be reflected in the number of our students who know where to seek guidance for their financial questions, manage their resources and climb out of poverty.
Program Success Monitoring Each student is surveyed before and after each class to ascertain increases in knowledge and sense of value. 
Program Success Examples Project 180 does not follow inmates once they're released. We can only rely upon the responses of our students (as above), their heartfelt thanks at finally learning about financial matters and our survey results in which 88% of students rate the class "excellent" and 12% rate the class "good."
Program Comments by Organization

As inmates near the end of their sentences and prepare emotionally and psychologically for community life, some of the most practical matters are set aside. The stress of facing an unsympathetic job market and a stressful financial situation can become so overwhelming, many inmates choose not to think about these issues at all. 

Project 180’s CEO Program and Financial Literacy Course encourage inmates to face reality, prepare themselves and plan ahead. In our programs, we share information about the current job market, discuss the nuts and bolts of obtaining and retaining a job, and provide tools that offenders need to persuade employers to hire them.

Inmates know how hard it will be for them in the outside world. Project 180 dispels the inevitable stress inmates feel and provides the opportunity to prepare for  job-hunting, interviewing and handling their finances. 

An added benefit of these programs is that inmates return to their dorms and teach others who were unable to attend. In the Financial Literacy Course, numerous inmates have stated that they plan to teach their families about sound financial practices when they return home.

Management Comments by Organization
2015 was a banner year and led into a strong 2016. For the first time, the organization has had full-time leadership thanks to a generous donor who has underwritten our CEO's salary. This gift has made all the difference in the organization's capacity to grow.
The gift has opened doors and provided the opportunity to stabilize as we have increased the size and efficacy of our board, acquired office space, delivered programs with frequently and regularly, developed new partnerships and re-invigorated our efforts to move forward on our most important initiative, our residential program.

We deeply appreciate the opportunities provided by this generous donor whose contribution came with this note, “I have heard many good things about Project 180 and feel that your organization should be given a boost. Thank you for your commitment to giving those who have had less fortunate lives than many of us a second chance.”

Financial opportunities for Project 180 include widening our outreach and giving community members additional reasons to be engaged with the organization. Our Strong Voices lecture series is our primary friend-raiser for the year and have determined that more robust and diversified sources of funding are necessary for a stable future. We're currently working on a comprehensive communications, marketing and fundraising plan.

A few notes about financial documents follow.
  • The 2015 990 EZ has been completed and will be reviewed by the Board of Directors on July 21, 2016 at our scheduled board meeting.
  • 2013 financial documents are currently being examined by Timm & Timm, CPAs for a letter of review.
  • 2014 financial documents are currently being audited by the same company. Results are expected in mid-July. 
Please contact for review or audit information. In the interim, the organization's end-of-year profit & loss and balance sheet are attached.
Board contributions are listed in the 2015 profit & loss as $2,308; an additional $1,250 that was contributed by board members was allocated to other line items. 
Financial Comments by Foundation
Organization files 990N with the IRS because gross receipts are $25,000 or less. Financial information taken from financial compilations through 2012: however, beginning in 2013, the organization filed a 990-EZ.  Individual contributions include foundation and corporate support.  Financial information for 2015 taken solely from unaudited compilations as the Federal tax return was not available at time of review.   The value of in-kind contributions is included in revenue in the compilations.
