Love Beyond Bars seeks to restore those affected by crime and incarceration by introducing prisoners, victims, and their families to a new hope available through Love Beyond Bars support groups. We accomplish this by inspiring organizations and communities—inside and outside of prison —to support the restoration of those affected by incarceration. We also, equip community volunteers, including men and women serving time, to create safer communities. We enforce special training and resources to prepare returning citizens to their communities as better neighbors. We advocate for a criminal justice system that upholds restorative values, so that communities are safer, victims are respected, and those who have caused harm are transformed. Outside prisons, we collaborate with organizations and local service providers to support families with loved ones behind bars and people affected by crime.
