Partner for Opportunity, Work for Good
In a nation where more than 1.7 million men and women live behind bars—and two-thirds will be rearrested within three years of their release—it’s clear that a fresh approach to crime and incarceration is desperately needed. By partnering with Prison Fellowship, corporations like yours can help further a restorative approach toward those affected by incarceration—creating safer, flourishing communities.
OPPORTUNITIES TO MAKE AN IMPACT
Opportunity Kids Collaborative
Increase equity and opportunity for children
We are connecting families in need to those who can help—thanks to corporations who care. Opportunity Kids™ are children aged 18 and under who, through no fault of their own, may struggle to flourish. Building on four decades of experience, and with the help of businesses who share our vision, Prison Fellowship® strengthens parent-child relationships, supports development of positive values and character, boosts educational achievement, and increases health and wellness, moving Opportunity Kids toward a lifetime of purpose and fulfilled potential.
Second Chance Opportunities
Advocate for justice that restores and the success of returning citizens
Every person has dignity and potential. But nearly 1 in 3 American adults has a criminal record, which limits their access to education, jobs, housing, and other opportunities needed to reach that potential. This all occurs against the backdrop of the criminal justice system’s stark racial imbalances. Prison Fellowship and our corporate partners are committed to advocating for more proportional accountability, constructive corrections culture, and second chances.
Prison Fellowship works to establish public-private partnerships across the country between departments of corrections, philanthropic entities, and community service providers to ensure men and women involved in the criminal justice system have the support they need for a safe, healthy, and successful reintegration into society. Our solution tackles this problem at every stage. Together we make a significant impact on this vulnerable group through our national Academy program, justice reform advocacy, Angel Tree® sports camps, Create: New Beginnings® workshops, Warden Exchange®, and inspirational Hope Events. The strides being made in Oklahoma are a great example of what we can accomplish when community partners come together.
