At Comeback, our purpose is to empower returning citizens towards a successful integration into society by providing them with the resources they require. Our highly committed coordinators and coaches offer guidance, assisting participants in overcoming challenges and promoting stability through meaningful employment. This not only breaks the cycle of crime but also opens up opportunities for a fulfilling life.
Enhancing Support and Fostering Employment for Former Felons
Many employers are wary of hiring returning citizens, despite their genuine desire to turn their lives around. By altering public perception, we can encourage more employers to embrace and employ individuals who have served time and prove to be diligent and committed employees in their organizations.
At Comeback, we believe in fostering collaboration among all stakeholders involved in serving returning citizens. Through our "Around the Table" program, we regularly bring together professionals to share ideas and enhance our services.
All participants in the Comeback programs, as well as the professional staff and volunteers who support them, represent the diverse demographic of Israeli society, including both women and men, Jews and Arabs, and individuals from various social backgrounds. Special accommodations, including support for Arabic speakers, members of the ultra-Orthodox community, and recent immigrants, are provided to meet their specific needs.
"I was imprisoned twice, not for short periods, for violence, drug and property offenses."
"I learned about myself, how much determination, courage and commitment I have and these qualities will accompany me in the future."
“At the age of 29, I served two years in prison for drug trafficking. Drugs are easy money, it's a huge temptation. You have to be “Iron Man” to get out of prison and not go back to peddling drugs"
“I think the program really gave me the opportunity to prove that I'm worth more.”
Join us at Comeback as we strive towards building a healthier
society by empowering individuals with criminal records to overcome challenges and succeed in the job market.
"We see the person, not the crime they committed"
