Rebuilding Lives After Incarceration!
At Target Area we work to build relationships so that lives can be rebuilt after incarceration!
The rate of recidivism in Illinois is up to 51.7% but for Target Area’s statewide CSAC program, the rate is down to 19%!
We realize the importance of care when working in the community and we work to educate our legislators about the struggles of our people!

Employment, education, housing, and other resources are a major need for those returning to the community from prison.
We must do what it takes to raise awareness and effect positive change.
