About Us


Just over 30, 000 inmates were released in 2013, according to the Illinois Department of corrections.   

About 12,000 or 39% made their way back to Chicago. In many cases they came home to the same impoverished neighborhoods or zip codes they left.


CHOICE ACTS NFP is dedicated to increasing public safety by reducing recidivism among male and female returning citizens recently released from Illinois and Northwest Indiana Department of Corrections.  Our mission is to provide them with positive alternatives to criminal activity as they reintegrate into society.
