The Shackles

Empowering Incarcerated Individuals and Their Families Through Education, Encouragement, and Restorative Justice Efforts

About Us.

Beyond the Shackles is a non-profit organization committed to providing hope and resources to incarcerated individuals, their families, and marginalized communities. Our mission is to empower individuals through education, encouragement, and restorative justice efforts, with the goal of fostering positive change and personal growth.

We believe that everyone deserves a chance to achieve their full potential, regardless of their past mistakes or circumstances. By providing access to resources such as in-prison programming, motivational speakers, spiritual programs and conferences, theatrical productions and other performing arts, and individual coaching and prayer, we hope to create a sense of community and support for individuals and families impacted by incarceration.


Our work also extends to restorative justice efforts, which aim to heal people and communities while reducing recidivism rates. By addressing the root challenges faced by those in incarcerated and marginalized communities, we strive for more fruitful, positive outcomes.


At Beyond the Shackles, we are committed to promoting personal and spiritual growth, empowering individuals to take ownership of their futures, and creating a brighter future beyond the prison walls.
