WILLIAMSBURG - A Brooklyn-based nonprofit is helping thousands of formerly incarcerated and homeless men rebuild their lives.

The DOE Fund is an organization that gives men a place to live at a facility on Porter Avenue. The nonprofit also provides education and job training resources for up to a year. The men hold jobs cleaning the city streets as part of the program.

The organization also has a youth program for 18- to 26-year-olds.

The DOE Fund's programs have a 55 percent success rate, with more than 400 men graduating each year.
