Extended Hands was founded in 2012 by Executive Director, Carolyn Crisp out of compassion for what husbands and wives of returning citizens endure during the transition.  Serving in the North Carolina state government for 23 years, Carolyn has been able to work in various administrative roles serving North Carolina’s most needy citizens, from those incarcerated to those who live daily with significant disabilities.  Through personal experience of what life was like being married to a returning citizen of the criminal justice system, Carolyn met many challenges to find the assistance needed to assist in his successful transition back into society.    

Our focus is on being able to assist with a successful transition.  Understanding the cycle that one goes through to find the necessary resources and aids is why we spend time getting to know them and their unique needs and circumstances.  Once we understand their personal goals, we can provide the appropriate guidance to prepare them to achieve their goal successfully.  We provide resource and referral assistance with career preparation workshops, employment skills marketing training, job search support, and resource referrals.

According to data published in the Prison Policy Initiative, North Carolina houses an estimated 160,000 individuals in its criminal justice facilities and expects to release about  17,016 every year back into society…back into our communities   Those released are given 3 years to re-offend and become re-incarcerated, and we hope to prevent that.

Extended Hands of NC, Inc. has begun to establish a physical presence (instead of working from home) to be more available to the individuals that we will serve.   As a result, Extended Hands of NC, Inc. is in dire need of funding to continue to provide services to returning citizens and to hopefully maintain our office space.  Office space would allow us a more professional and secure setting from which we can provide our services, as well as allow us the space to host workshops and provide hands-on training using volunteer support.

We appreciate any consideration for funding.  Our dedication to assisting returning citizens is our main priority, and we’d like to continue to offer our services free of charge so that there are no barriers to access.  Any funding we receive toward our efforts is welcome.
