College and Community Fellowship (CCF)
Founded in 2000, CCF aims to remove barriers to reentry into the community for women who have a history with the criminal legal system. CCF’s programs address individual, institutional, and systemic change through the following three key program areas: College & Career Programs, Policy & Advocacy and THRIVE Technical Assistance. The agency has a budget of over $3 million and a staff of 18, and focuses its work at the intersection of racial equity, criminal legal reform, higher education access, economic justice, and community building.
Centering equity as a foundational principle of justice in the context of race, gender, and conviction status, CCF believes that all people should have access to the resources they need to thrive. CCF passionately believes in elevating the leadership of the communities we serve. Learn more about CCF’s work at collegeandcommunity.org.
