With 40 years of experience helping restore men and women behind bars, Prison Fellowship advocates for federal and state criminal justice reforms that transform those responsible for crime, validate victims, and encourage communities to play a role in creating a safe, redemptive, and just society.
In 2014, the Indiana legislature passed reforms that sought to focus prison sentences on those individuals who pose the most risk to society. In 2016, HB 1102 was passed, providing local governments with the funds needed to assist individuals with mental health or addiction problems with services that will help divert them from the criminal justice system.
