Incarceration in America
Over 2.2 million Americans are incarcerated today. Upon their release from prison, former inmates often face social stigma and employment barriers that prevent them from attaining a job. Research has shown that without meaningful employment opportunities, many of these men and women will return to prison in as little as 3 years.
A Meaningful Job Goes A Long Way
To help break this socially and financially destructive cycle of recidivism (the tendency of a convicted criminal to reoffend), The Redemption Project empowers inmates through virtue-based education (called Virtues for Success) while partnering with employers to provide these individuals with mentoring opportunities while incarcerated and meaningful employment upon release.

Providing meaningful employment is critical to reducing the staggering recidivism rates in our country and will be even more essential as formerly incarcerated people try rebuild their lives post-COVID-19. To effectively meet a challenge of this size, we need committed donor partners like you to help us provide inmates with not only good jobs, but the character and integrity to keep them!
