F.O.R.T.E. provides a healthy and transparent living environment for formerly incarcerated students transitioning through post-secondary education. Providing affordable housing and stability in the world of academia upon re-entry is paramount in the realization of our Mission.



F.O.R.T.E. takes meaningful steps to promote inclusiveness, autonomy, accountability, and economic self-sufficiency for our students. Devising and implementing a supportive housing strategy upon reentry and maintaining strategic partnerships with higher education institutions, we maintain retention and alleviate attrition by any means other than free choice.
