Hope for Prisoners is committed to helping men, women and young adults successfully reenter the workforce, their families and our community.

Prisoners behind bars, victims of crime, families torn apart by incarcerationโ€”all are loved by God and worthy of our attention.

Neighborhoods can be made safer and healthier through a restorative approach to prisoners and those affected by crime.

Men and women behind bars are also sons and daughters, fathers and mothers. What is being done to repair these relationships?
