Our Values

Building Promise USA (BPUSA) is a mission focused non-profit direct service provider that is run, led, and driven by people living with criminal records, and family members directly impacted by incarceration. BPUSA was founded in 2017 on the premise that those closest to the problem are often closest to the solution. In March of 2020, BPUSA received its IRS charitable status. On September 4, 2021, BPUSA was named the Coordinating Agency for Reentry Service for the City of Austin.​

We see a community where formerly incarcerated individuals will have the opportunity to successfully transition back into the community and go on to reach their full potential.

To that end, our mission is to dismantle the cycle of incarceration, unemployment and homelessness among people with justice involvement and behavioral health challenges regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, lack of religion or disability. We achieve this mission by providing transitional and support programs services to them, their families and their communities.
