Better systems.
Better outcomes.

Our Mission

By investing in the human potential of those who are impacted by the youth and criminal justice systems, we develop healthy, inclusive and productive communities.

The United States positions itself as a beacon of democracy and the leader of the free world, yet we have the highest incarceration rate in the world.

We spend approximately $182 billion annually on systems that do not enhance public safety but, instead, wreak havoc on families and communities.

Moreover, deplorable and abusive conditions of confinement not only threaten the well-being of those who are incarcerated, they also increase safety risks for correctional officers and other institutional staff.

Many individuals – across race, ethnicity, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, and political affiliation – acknowledge that mass incarceration must come to an end.
