Beyond The Shackles Wants To Change This.

Our mission is to provide hope to the incarcerated, disenfranchised and their families through the vehicles of prison ministry, education, film,  theatrical arts, special programs, charity events and restorative justice efforts.  These opportunities provide men and women with the encouragement and tools needed to support positive changes

Who We Are

Beyond The Shackles' mission is focused on making a meaningful impact in the lives of incarcerated individuals, their families, and marginalized communities. By providing hope, education, and restorative justice efforts, we aims to support positive change and empower individuals to become stronger leaders.

Incarceration affects not only the individual serving time but also their loved ones, who often face unique challenges and hardships. By extending support to families, Beyond the Shackles recognizes the importance of a holistic approach to rehabilitation and reintegration.

Restorative justice efforts play a vital role in our mission. Instead of focusing solely on punishment, we aim to promote healing, accountability, and the restoration of relationships. This approach recognizes that true rehabilitation involves addressing the underlying causes of criminal behavior and creating opportunities for individuals to make amends and reintegrate into society successfully.
