HOPE for Prisoners is committed to helping men, women and young adults successfully reenter the workforce, their families and our community.
HOPE for Prisoners works to empower the formerly incarcerated and their families to create a successful future built on strategic leadership and character development. By assisting those fighting for second chances, we strive to serve, build and strengthen our community.
Our goal is to continue to impact the lives of men and women in our community by helping to facilitate successful reentry to people who have paid their debt to society, transformed their lives and are making positive contributions through hard work and giving back to others. In doing this, our work helps to reduce recidivism, increases public safety and creates a ripple effect that impacts the next generation.
