TOGETHER WE TRANSFORM LIVES IMPACTED BY INCARCERATION
“A society is ultimately judged by how it treats it's weakest and most vulnerable members.”
Our programs strengthen the weakest among us. These programs are possible because of your generous donations.
CHANGE a life, STRENGTHEN your community
Prison Consulting Services
Our consultants know this path and will guide you through it from indictment to post incarceration. We will assist you in rejoining society and your family and in reestablishing your professional life and reputation in your community.
Rise-N-Step Technology Center
Funded by corporate and individual donations, Rise-N-Step technology centers seek to bridge the digital divide between the rich and the poor by providing marginalized and disenfranchised communities access to technology.

You can either donate anonymously or on behalf of a friend or family member who is incarcerated either in a state of federal institution. Your donation of $150 to Rise-N-Step allows us to continue to provide advocacy and reentry programs to those who need them. Sponsor a Citizen today.

“A past prison sentence should never be a life sentence.” - Renee Hasler
In the United States citizens who are convicted of a felony or even a misdemeanor often serve a life sentence. Although we preach non-discrimination, justice-involved citizens continue to face discrimination in the workplace, housing, education, financial resources, and civil rights. If we are serious about reintegration we must remove these barriers.
