A justice involved individuals integration back into community requires certain social tools:
self-advocacy is one; respect for community is two, nurturing a new type of connection (because
in prison you connect differently than outside) with your neighbors.

relationships with NCDPS, local law enforcement, nonprofits, mental health agencies and
community leaders. Each of the partnerships formed serve as a key to unlock success while in
transition for the returning citizens that SWIT serves.

SWIT strives to educate and empower returning citizens on how to overcome the mental barriers
that threaten successful reentry. The challenges with securing housing, employment, education,
transportation and medical services are difficult to navigate. SWIT not only provides access to
the necessary resources but also provides each returning citizen with the tools to navigate getting

discussed as often. That is why SWIT teaches vital skills such as:relationship building, social
interactions, and social engagements.
