We are continuing to provide services during this threatening time. Our clients are vulnerable and NOW more than ever they need our help, and we need yours. Now, through April 30th, we have teamed up with the Stand Together Foundation and their #GiveTogetherNow and #HelptheHelpers campaign.
HOPE for Prisoners gives hope to those who feel that all has been lost.
Hope for Prisoners assists with reentry by providing the formerly incarcerated long-term support and services as they work to reclaim their lives, families and standing in the community. We give them hope. Hope changes lives.
Founder Jon Ponder found himself returning to his community after spending time in prison and experienced firsthand the same challenges most face when they are released. He realized there was a lack of long-term support and guidance for those who learned from their mistakes and had a genuine desire to change the direction of their lives. From his personal experience and his passion to help those facing the same challenges he overcame, HOPE for Prisoners was born.
The success of our clients is the result of their long-term commitment and relationship with their mentors. What makes Hope for Prisoners different from other organizations is its partnership with local law enforcement. This helps clients to understand the role of law enforcement in the community. This understanding helps clients overcome their fear of police and build respect for law enforcement.
These uncertain times involving the COVID-19 pandemic are particularly threatening to the vulnerable men and women were serve. We’ve adapted quickly, in order to care and counsel from a distance. Our team is working tirelessly to maintain our services, offer our programs and connect our clients to the community. This commitment comes with a cost.
With your support, we can uphold our mission to assists with reentry by providing formerly incarcerated individuals long-term support and services as they work to reclaim their lives, families and standing in the community.
We are blessed to have the support of our community and supporters. With your support we will continue to give HOPE.
