"I made a lot of mistakes, but I learned from those mistakes. Coming to Rubicon taught me a lot about taking responsibility."
Rubicon's mission is to equip people to break the cycle of poverty. Our work, however, goes beyond simply getting a job. We support our participants to build rich and fulfilling lives outside of our walls as well. Our participants are building positive professional and personal networks, and becoming change agents in their own communities.

“I never had a job before I came here. So that was a challenge for me, getting up in the morning. Sometimes I wasn’t in the mood, but my workshop group always got me in the mood.”
“I knew that God had forgiven me, but society doesn’t forgive so easily. Other people’s judgment was a big fear, but at Rubicon, they helped me to get over that.”
“At Rubicon, they talk about building networks and connections all the time. Your network can help you find a job, your friends can be there to support you when you feel like you can’t go on, but the biggest gift that my sobriety and my stability have given me has been earning the trust of my wife and daughter again.”
