How We Got Started
S&D PJ Housing proudly serves the greater Detroit area. Founded by E.B. Jordan, who personally experienced incarceration for two years, our organization was born from her firsthand journey of reintegration.
Supported by a strong network of friends and family, E.B. navigated the challenges of transitioning back into the community.
During her time in prison, she enrolled in Building Trades classes, skills she applied to S&D PJ Housing projects.
E.B also serves as the Block Club President and Precinct Delegate in her neighborhood.
Our vision is to rehabilitate urban houses and establish transitional homes for women parolees or those on tether from prison, providing safe living conditions and resources.
Through these efforts, S&D PJ Housing actively fights urban blight in Detroit.
At S&D PJ Housing, our approach is rooted in empathy, empowerment, and practical support.
We believe in a holistic method to address the multifaceted challenges faced by individuals reintegrating into society after incarceration.
We understand that successful reintegration involves more than finding a job or a place to live.
Our approach encompasses a range of needs, including housing, education, job skills, emotional well-being, and community support.
We recognize the uniqueness of each individual’s journey.
Our programs are tailored to address specific barriers and challenges faced by those transitioning from incarceration, offering personalized plans to foster growth and stability.
We provide a comprehensive set of resources encompassing life skills training, education programs, job placement assistance, and community engagement initiatives.
These resources aim to equip individuals with the tools and knowledge necessary for a fresh start.
We foster an inclusive and supportive community environment, encouraging collaboration, mutual support, and a sense of belonging.
Our aim is to create a safe space where individuals feel empowered and encouraged to rebuild their lives.
We understand that successful reintegration is an ongoing process. Our approach emphasizes long-term support, aiming not just for immediate success but sustained growth and stability for individuals on their reentry journey.
At S&D PJ Housing, our approach is not just about addressing immediate needs; it’s about fostering empowerment, breaking down barriers, and enabling individuals to rebuild their lives with dignity and purpose.
