Parole Project enhances public safety through advocacy, programming, and services for persons who have served long prison sentences so that they may reach their full potential.
We envision a criminal justice system that recognizes rehabilitation, redemption and second chances.
We believe in the human potential for change.
We believe in removing barriers that strip dignity and inhibit opportunities for formerly incarcerated people to become productive members of our communities.
We believe in successful reentry that restores lives, repairs families, improves communities, and saves taxpayer money.
