In-Reach

In the confines of prisons, men grasp on to the pieces of the free world that are still available to them.  As time passes, those pieces become fewer and smaller.  We reach in to prisons to help homies stay connected to loved ones and the world.  Letters of encouragement and friendship, financial support for phone and email accounts and help in connecting with family work to build and keep vital relationships.  Food packages bring the hope that someone cares about them.  Outlets for artistic expression give purpose and connection.

Reaching In

Every day we reach into prisons to offer homies friendship, emotional support, and a listening ear via letters, emails and phone calls.  Our time and genuine care for homies provides thirsty souls with kinship and love that can only come from authentic personal relationships.   From time to time we send packages of shelf-stable food and basic toiletries to remind homies that someone cares about them.

Supporting Connections

We help keep inmates connected to their most important relationships - family and close friends - via financial support for phone and email accounts and making connections to family on their behalf.  Maintaining healthy relationships with loved ones boosts morale and keeps hope alive.

Prison Visits

Sometimes the best gift you can give is your time and presence.  We step into prisons for in-person contact and conversation.  We recently participated in and spoke at the Hispanic Culture event in the DOC facility in Shelton, Washington.  We are looking forward to resuming in-person visits after the covid risk subsides.

"Neaners, ...

I don't deserve your help, concern or respect, but you feel like I do so I humbly accept all your blessings, prayers and hopes that you bestow upon me.  The sponsors who contribute will never understand exactly what it is to feel that someone who was once an enemy is now a best friend, and good homie and a life long mentor and friend...

Much love and respect, 

Joey"

Outreach

To find new hope, homies must forgive, heal, and find new purpose.  We provide a place to rest, heal, find peace, and contribute to something meaningful.  We facilitate homies in rebranding themselves through tattoo removal.  We accompany homies in navigating through courts, required appointments and other intimidating places.  We assist with prisoner re-entry needs through Homie Boxes of essential clothing and toiletries.

Finding Peace

Our facility in the countryside is a quiet place to participate in daily devotions, find support, pray for each other and connect with God through nature.

Walking Beside

We accompany homies through the many steps of getting reestablished, sitting beside them as they find support programs, acquire their new ID, attend DOC appointments, and jump other re-entry hurdles.

Tattoo Removal

The process of removing facial tattoos is long and tough.  We partner with a clinic and hold the hands of homies while their faces are renewed.

Homie Boxes

Many men exit prison with the clothes on their back and not much else.  We help homies get started with basic supplies such as undergarments, socks, razors and other essentials.

Removing tattoos can take years and is painful and usually very expensive.  Thanks to our volunteers, we are able to offer this benefit, as well as someone who has been through it to accompany homies as they rebrand themselves.
