To restore those affected by crime and incarceration.
What We Do
Prison Fellowship(r) 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 seven months in federal prison for a Watergate-related crime. Today Prison Fellowship brings restoration to those affected by crime and incarceration nationwide by facilitating prisoners' transformation, supporting prisoners' families and returning citizens, and advocating for a criminal justice system that reflects the God-given dignity and potential of all individuals. Through an awakening to new hope and life purpose, Prison Fellowship helps those who once broke the law be transformed and mobilized to serve their community, replacing the cycle of crime with a cycle of renewal.
