Help Us Be The Change 

Support 2 Other People aims to make a real impact in the lives of young Black men who are looking to reach their potential. Our goals are as ambitious as the problem is large - but we will not back down. Too many young men need real assistance to pursue their purpose, and we need your help to ensure they get the help they need. 

What Does the Statistics Say?

Troubled young Black men - including ex-offenders, repeat offenders, and those aging out of

Foster Care - face a unique set of problems. The following outlines three specific areas of need. 

Statistics

D.C. Dept. of Corrections

In the District of Columbia Department of Corrections residency population, 88% are Black  men. More than 60% of men in the Dept. of Corrections are unemployed at the time of incarceration.  About 30% were employed or part-time employed and at the time of release from the D.C. Dept. of Corrections will no longer have employment.
