About:
Prison Fellowship is the nation's largest Christian nonprofit serving prisoners, former prisoners, and their families, and a leading advocate for criminal justice reform. The organization was founded in 1976 by Charles Colson, a former aide to President Nixon who served a seven-month sentence for a Watergate-related crime. Today, through an amazing awakening to new hope and life purpose, it helps transforms those who once broke the law, mobilizing them to serve their communities and replace the cycle of crime with a cycle of renewal.

Our Partnership

Mobilizing Volunteers
Volunteers are passionate about serving individuals in and out of prison to help those affected by incarceration to navigate reentry into community.
Creativity From Our Volunteers
Prison Fellowship collaborates with churches, para-church organizations, and local service providers to support families with loved ones behind bars and people affected by crime including prisoners and their families, victims, and wardens.
Why We Love This Affiliate
We love Prison Fellowship because their programs work to bring restoration to not only the prisoner but their families and those who are victims of crimes as well.

I've seen lives changed, as well as mine. I've learned more from the guys, I think, than they've learned from me. It's all about serving Jesus.
