BENEFITING: THE FREEDOM TO CHOOSE PROJECT
Invest in Second Chances! Donate Now!
Inmates at Valley State Prison for Men raised $3,087.47 among themselves to donate to Freedom to Choose! Their wages range from $0.09 to $0.80/hr... As one person said, “That’s like $3 million in prison wages!” These men have done every program available, and still they told us we have something different.
MATCH the donation of the men-in-prison! Donate $3,000 or $250/month!
Ask yourself this: Who do you want moving to your neighborhood? Someone who thinks of themselves as a criminal, or someone who takes personal responsibility?
We aren’t giving fish to people, we are teaching people how to fish for themselves.
With your donation, we will expand our programs in 2016 to include 2 workshops for 200+ men in prison, 3 workshops for 200+ women in prison, men’s prison weekly support group classes, and a whole year of weekly parolee re-entry classes for men & women. Click here to see what your donation supports.
Every donation counts! Click here to learn why.
We’ve been volunteering in CA prisons for over 11 years. To date, over 400 volunteers have served over 3,700 people, donating more than 67,000 hours. We plan to continue. We’re asking you to join us in expanding our mission: Using the Power of Love to prevent addiction, violence and incarceration. Our intention is to have the means so that any prison, any parolee, any teen who wants to learn these skills can be a part of a Freedom to Choose community.
California spends $47,421 per person per year on incarceration. It only costs $100 for an inmate to take a 2-day workshop from Freedom to Choose.
