Ready, Willing & Able is a program for second chances

Ready, Willing & Able (RWA) works with Philadelphians facing serious social and economic barriers: 100% are homeless, nearly 70% of RWA trainees have incarceration histories of 5 years or more; 96% have a history of drug or alcohol abuse; and 36% do not have a high school diploma or a GED.

Despite these challenges, Ready, Willing & Able believes that "work works" to overcome poverty, addiction, and crime — and helps men become productive, contributing members of our community — and responsible fathers to their children — again. Our comprehensive transitional work and housing program helps men realize their potential and directs them on a path to independence.
