'After Orange' #ThePrisonProject
Started as a documentation project in Las Vegas as Cassandra followed women leaving prison in 2013. She soon started discovered the housing problem, especially for women who were up for parole with nowhere to go. In October, 2016, Cassandra opened After Orange: Halfway Home, a clean and sober home for women leaving prison. Although we were not able to keep that home open, we are opening a new home soon!
After Orange is now a 501(c)3
