Prison Fellowship® continues to advocate for justice that restores. As Prison Fellowship gears up for Second Chance Month in April, we thank you for your support as we continue to advocate for justice that restores. We're excited about what's happening across the country.
It is no secret that existing state and federal prison systems are too often models of inefficiency and ineffectiveness. Outdated facilities have been unable to keep up with growing prison populations.
