A Community Leader


Progress House Association is one of Washington's largest nonprofit social impact organizations with focus on stability initiatives alongside human capital development for people with criminal records. At Progress House, we focus on helping our clients secure transitional and permanent housing, treatment and/or counseling services, and employment. We also offer services to engage and support the families of our clients.


We understand that serving our clients requires an holistic approach starting with the individual and working towards a goal oriented future. We know that a safe home and gainful employment offers the best chance at successful reentry while reducing recidivism.

Progress House is a community leader in addressing the challenges and barriers to successful reentry. We are a go-to source for best practices and excellent results. 


Reducing Recidivism

Progress House's evidence-based programs are geared toward addressing typical barriers to reentry. Housing and employment-related services are the cornerstones of our services, which includes transitional housing, treatment services, and job preparedness, placement and retention services. 

"Without Progress House I would've gotten out and had nothing. Now I'm working for the union after finishing an apprenticeship program."
