Who We Are

Visions of Tomorrow NC is a non-profit 501 c3 organization ran by those compelled by the passion to make the transition back into society as easy as possible for people previously incarcerated. We receive no government funding, however, the value of our services to ex-offenders and the wrongly convicted cannot be matched monetarily.

Society makes it almost impossible to live a productive life after incarceration, causing them to regress. This is the major reason why crime is on the rise despite all attempts to reduce it. The Visions of Tomorrow NC was birthed with a vision to provide re-entry support for those being released from NC prisons, provide educational resources to empower family members and friends in advocating for their loved ones, provide public awareness on the problems of incarceration of persons in society, and to proffer solutions for same. The organization is structured to reach out to every class of person currently having experiences of incarceration.

We aim to treat fairly those that are treated unfairly to almost everything in life, even after release. We work alongside inmates during their sentence to help build confidence and provide practical support. With over 626,000 people gaining their freedom each year it can be easy for some people to be left behind by the system, which is why we founded Visions of Tomorrow NC. We have helped people from all walks of life help achieve their goals on the outside by offering job training, housing support, advocacy advice to help strengthen familial bonds, resume writing, and job placement.

What We Do

Visions of Tomorrow NC job trаіnіng program has bееn еѕtаblіѕhеd to саtеr to 95% of іnсаrсеrаtеd іndіvіduаlѕ who will eventually leave prison and return home. We offer training in Microsoft Office, cashier, construction, customer service, and janitorial to name a few.

Reducing recidivism is critical for community safety; providing effective rehabilitation and skill development for those incarcerated and formerly incarcerated is critical to strengthening households and the economy.

  • Hold our legislators accountable for the policies that support adequate financial allocations for medical treatment provided to those incarcerated.

  • To put a stop to societal discrimination and the subsequent debilitating implications it has, on incarcerated individuals and their families.

  • To create a safe landing in society, for ex-inmates and to equip their families for the challenges before and after their release. This is by way of assistance in job training and placements, as well as educational opportunities.
