Help Me Help You Foundation (HMHY) serves as the Reentry Hub for the City of Richmond. HMHY is a public foundation designed to assist in poverty reduction and the reintegration of returning citizens into the community. Our goal is to reduce jail/prison recidivism, and improve public safety through addressing the educational, employment, healthcare and family relationship needs of returning citizens. HMHY provides support and connection to needed services in the community after the returning citizen has been released. HMHY seeks to position itself as a solution to the problem and not just an articulator of one; HMHY seeks to partner with individuals and entities to bring power back to the lives of former offenders. Empowerment comes in many forms: Emotional, Social, Spiritual, Economic, and Political. HMHY seeks holistic empowerment to bring about holistic change.
