Organization Information


Organization: 180 Degrees

Sector: 501C-3 Non-Profit

Organization Mission: 180 Degrees' residential program supports men as they transition back into the community, providing short-term housing and services to help them secure stable employment, maintain sobriety, and establish new living arrangements. Since 1973, 180 Degrees has served men re-entering communities from correctional facilities. Each year more than 200 men walk through the doors, on their way to a fresh start. Though not everyone succeeds, the ones who manage to secure employment and housing while realizing that their commitment to steady employment, sobriety and a stable living space successfully graduate programming. Currently, graduation rate is about 70%.

    • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
    • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
    • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

    While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

    This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.
