The formerly incarcerated and those suffering with addiction have limited resources available to them.

They struggle to obtain even the simplest things due to an unfair stigma.

B A S I C   N E E D S

People recently released from prison or recovery facilities don’t have a place to live or a means to communicate with people who can lift them up.

E M P L O Y M E N T 

They don’t have a job and often times find employment difficult if they don’t have a driver’s license or a reliable means of transportation.

S T I G M A 

Felons + addicts don’t serve their sentence and “serve their time.” Their entire life is affected. People call it a ‘permanent record’ for a reason.

The F5 Project cuts the red tape + eliminates barriers to these items immediately. We are hands and feet on the street offering housing, resources and a customized support plan for those who need us.

Everyone deserves grace + a chance to refresh.

The F5 project was named because the founder had 5 felonies and had been given a chance to refresh his life. The refresh key on a keyboard is F5.

Join Our Cause

How we help:

We deal with everyone as an individual. There is no one size fits all approach.


C O N N E C T 

We connect with individuals in jails and in recovery to remind them that we’re available for them when they come out.


P L A N 

We ask, “What do you need?” to people who have never had that question asked to them and create a unique, heart-centered plan for each individual.


R E F R E S H 

With a house, a job, a plan and hope for the future…Grace has been given – change is on the horizon.

Do you give grace without question?

The F5 project is a reflection of its community’s kindness, generosity and overwhelming committment to PEOPLE. Through donations our organization is able to expand community outreach efforts + impact lives. 

Together we can make a difference.
