Empowering Individuals for a Successful Reintegration after Incarceration


Reentry Survivors was founded in 2012 with a transformative purpose at heart: To ignite hope and inspire life-changing opportunities for individuals returning to the community after incarceration.


We unite people from every corner of our society to engage in an impactful journey of reentry, strengthening bonds and nurturing growth year after year.

Our broad spectrum of programs provides a fertile ground for personal and professional development. While our key focus lies in empowering reentry, we ensure an enriching experience filled with learning, inspiration, and, of course, an atmosphere of positivity.

Our ace team, led by dynamic leaders such as Barry Diamond, Martin "King" Sparkman and their strategic partners nurture an environment rich with unquenchable thirst for knowledge and exploration. Their dedication, expertise, and passion for bettering lives reverberate through each program, leaving participants feeling fulfilled, inspired, and ready to embrace life once again.
