Roca Founder & CEO Molly Baldwin on Reducing Recidivism

Posted by Admin on Aug 3, 2017 11:00:17 AM


“We also knew that no one really worked with young people who were not ready, willing, or able to participate in a program, or keep a job - those who do not show up. They are angry and left out, they are depressed and often cause harm, and no one wants to spend time with them. This became the whole purpose of our work: show up at Roca ready to participate and we will show you the door; run away from us, tell us to go to hell, and you are in!”
