Founded in 2016 by a former inmate, F5 helps to coordinate services and provide personal support in order to deter repeat offenses. After serving time and realizing the lack of services once released from prison, F5’s founder realized that if we as a society are unable to help break the cycle in an individual’s life that led them to crime, we will fail. If we are able to provide continued support when they leave confinement, we have a greater chance of positively impacting a former inmate’s life by leveling barriers. That benefits all of us, as well as the former offender.

F5 starts the transition journey through contact while in confinement. Through discussion, motivation, and direct relationship building, inmates are introduced to F5 members…

Commonly known as function keys on a computer keyboard, F1 through F12 may have a variety of different uses but F5 is special to us for one reason… F5 is the refresh key. No matter what data you have on your computer screen, when you hit F5 it all deletes. This is really what any person with a background wants, to start over, clean, refresh.

We help make that happen from our approach, and its also happens to be how many felonies the founder of F5 Project had when he started is journey to success. We believe this is what differentiates F5 from other companies, “we have been in their shoes” approach will always win out in any scenario.

  • Communication
  • Housing
  • Employment
  • Healthy Socialization
  • Transportation

These pillars not only provide the foundation for F5 Project, but human life in general. They are the building blocks that allow each of us to define and pursue our purpose. Communication and healthy socialization are the driving forces F5 Project leaders and participants use to create strategic partnerships within the community that facilitate housing options, employment opportunities and transportation solutions. Taken as a whole, the synergy of these five pillars accomplish more than a single one could accomplish alone.
