White Feather Re-Entry provides stable transitional housing with supportive services to clients, thereby enhancing public safety.
White Feather Re-Entry is to provide a single point of contact for resources, case management and a support network for individuals as they transition back to our communities.
Case management may include, but not limited to: housing, employment, education, counseling and appropriate treatment to meet individuals needs.
White Feather Re-Entry was first established in 1985 by Lesta Rogers under the name of "Fresh Start Housing". In September of 2011, Lesta changed the name to "White Feather Re-Entry" because of some confusion our clients were having due to some newly formed housing groups using her business name (Fresh Start) as part of their business name.
Lesta believes in helping others, especially those just released from prison. She donates her time and money for this cause and tends to operate White Feather Re-Entry like a non-profit organization. Lesta and the supporters of White Feather Re-Entry believe that neighborhoods are safer if transitioning offenders have housing as the first step in community support. Residents have served their time as payment to society. Housing forms the first step in their successful re-entry. Lesta focus is on providing quality houses located in Pierce County as well as throughout western Washington state.
Over 90% of those who are incarcerated will eventually be released back into our communities. Lesta has a strong relationship with the Washington State Department of Corrections (DOC) from many years of working cooperative with them and the incarcerated.
