In Bay area, men leaving incarceration face a wide variety of challenges. Volunteers of America in the Bay Area provides a variety of services to help these individuals start new, healthy lives, significantly reducing recidivism. These services enrich the lives of the men we serve through education, employment counseling, job training, parenting classes, life-skills workshops and more. At the same time, our community is improved by helping men transform into better husbands, fathers, employees and neighbors. Go to our Locations and Contacts page for details on each site.
