Meeting returning citizens
where they're at.
ARCH exists to help returning citizens reintegrate into the community on their own terms. We are committed to making the world a more welcoming place for returning citizens one business, organization, and faith community at a time.
ARCH's work falls into four overarching initiatives: workforce development, reentry services, community education & outreach and advocacy & policy change.
ARCH specializes in developing the skills returning citizens need for successful careers. From case management & career development at Cafe Overlook to CAD training in Delaware - we provide the training people need to be part of the workforce.
Educating the community on reentry issues is fundamental to reducing stigma. ARCH provides presentations to local faith communities and businesses and shares the stories of formerly incarcerated people on 'The Brown Couch with Vanita Nevis.'
ARCH accompanies individuals returning to the community by connecting them to local resources. Are you a returning citizen in need of resources? Are you a provider with a client in need of resources? Please fill out one of the intake forms below.
ARCH equips justice-involved leaders and their advocates to leadership in efforts related to reentry and criminal justice reforms focused on rehabilitation, restoration, and redemption.
How We Can Help
Were you incarcerated and need basic necessities like clothes or hygiene products? Do you need a Birth Certificate or State ID, but aren't sure how to get one?
Many formerly incarcerated people struggle to find good, stable work. ARCH can help you find a job that will not only pay your bills, but offer benefits.
Are you struggling to find connections to other formerly incarcerated people? Do you want to find substance use or mental health support groups?
Located on the 16th floor of the Franklin County Courthouse, Cafe Overlook is a collaborative project from Service! Relief for Hospitality Workers, the Franklin County Board of Commissioners, ARCH, and ECDI.
