Inspiration, Transformation, and Collaboration.
The Wilmington HOPE Commission
launched a joint venture with Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity in the construction of a 10,700 square-foot facility aptly named the Achievement Center located at 38 Vandever Avenue.
In partnership with state and local government agencies, as well as area non-profits, the Achievement Center serves as an essential hub for the entire community. Our model approach to prisoner reentry is one of a kind in Delaware.
The Achievement Center is uniquely positioned as a multi-agency collaboration, deploying a multi-disciplinary approach to providing a continuum of evidence-based reentry services from a single location.
The Hope Commission is Delaware’s premier correctional reentry program. It provides comprehensive reentry support services that target crime-causing factors, shown to be predictors of recidivism, for formerly incarcerated high-risk men leaving prison and returning to Wilmington’s most distressed communities.
The Hope Commission provides rehabilitative treatment services and programs designed to promote successful reentry based on research-informed solutions. Risk and needs assessments, cognitive-behavioral therapies, vocational readiness training, educational peer support, behavioral health services, and family–reunification programs are utilized to reduce recidivism and improve safety in the State of Delaware.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
is an evidence-based practice using scientific techniques to reduce risk and recidivism.
Habilitation Empowerment Accountability Therapy (HEAT)
is a promising practice to develop a culturally proficient intervention in prison reentry.
