The Yavapai Reentry Project is Seeking Donations of Bikes and Computers with 3 Events Around the County
Yavapai County, AZ – The Yavapai Reentry Project (YRP), a project of MATFORCE, works with formerly incarcerated individuals to overcome the barriers often faced when returning to the community from incarceration. Two common barriers are transportation, and access to a computer to apply for jobs and get an education.
To help YRP participants overcome these two common barriers, YRP is collaborating with Yavapai College Police Department and Chain Reaction to collect much needed computers, bikes, and bike accessories during three donation events around Yavapai County.
