Every success is hard-earned at women's support group

Dillon’s Cross Project in Ireland is making a difference in the lives of wives and partners of prisoners and former prisoners and their families by providing fundamental life skills, education opportunities, and support. Their goal is to break the cycle of crime: "Really what we are trying to do is prevent the next generation going down the same pathway." http://ow.ly/VmEx50tsTXu

The Dillon's Cross Project in Cork, which provides support and education to the wives and partners of prisoners and ex-prisoners, says it is "surviving on peanuts".

VALERYN | Colombia - Prison Fellowship International

When Prison Fellowship Colombia staff found Valeryn, she and her sisters were living with their mother in a Medellin shantytown. Valeryn’s mother is unemployed; her father is serving a 17-year sentence. Their home was in danger of being destroyed by a landslide, but support through our Child sponsorship program helped move the family to a safer home. The support didn’t end there. She and her family also receive food, health care, counseling, and connection to a local church. Every day is difficult, but we’re helping to relieve their burdens. Read more of Valeryn’s story here: http://ow.ly/aNHa50tsJqm

Nine-year-old Valeryn survives life without her father in the dangerous shantytowns of Colombia. Child sponsorship is bringing her family hope and help and strength.

Congrats @Prison Fellowship England and Wales!

It was an honour to witness the final session of the Sycamore Tree restorative justice course at HMP Downview women’s prison. This transformative course helps inspire inmates to take responsibility for their own actions & to learn from them.

I was so pleased to see the progress that had been made and hope it makes a difference. All prisons should have similar courses to help reduce reoffending rates and tackle overcrowding in prisons.

Please consider supporting the Sycamore Tree Project to help more offenders turn their lives around.

Inmate freed thanks to Trump's prison reform dedicates life to helping others

What a beautiful testimony on a life transformed through the work of God and the outcome of successful, faith-based rehabilitative programs for prisoners. The First Step Act is a huge step in prison reform in the U.S. Congrats to the efforts of Prison Fellowship!

One of the first prison inmates to be released under a criminal justice reform law signed by President Donald Trump has dedicated the rest of his free life to helping those in need — a calling he said God has placed on his heart.

No one is beyond redemption. Prison Fellowship Singapore shares the transformative story of a staff member.

“I consider myself to be the biggest trouble-maker, out of the eight children my parents have,” Peter Soo admitted candidly. His journey from being a gangster, drug addict and compulsive gambler to a prison counsellor preaching about the redeeming love of God has left many in both shock and awe -- especially his friends from the triad.

YVONNE | Rwanda - Prison Fellowship International

Children of prisoners are well acquainted with the unexpected twists and turns life can take: One day they're a carefree child and the next their mother or father is ripped from their home and sent to prison. It's truly amazing the difference one sponsor can make in the life of a child in need. In 2018, you helped us care for nearly 5,700 children of prisoners in 8 countries. Read Yvonne's story.

Yvonne lost connection with both of her parents when they went to prison, but forging a connection with a caring supporter has changed her life.
