PA House of Hope is a 501(c) 3 non-profit interfaith organization based in Pennsylvania dedicated to assisting individuals who have been affected by mass incarceration through addressing their issues to achieve healthy, productive and meaningful lives for them and their families.
We believe that breaking the cycles of addiction, unemployment, crime, and imprisonment benefits everyone – victims, offenders, families, and communities.
We offer this by treating our clients with dignity and respect and by encouraging them to take advantage of the life-changing tools. We strive to fulfill our mission to help these men and women who want to rebuild their lives.
The specific purpose of PA House of Hope is to provide logistical, educational and mentor support services for individuals affected by mass incarceration to help them live more productive and meaningful lives. In order to achieve this purpose, we undertake the following tasks:
- Organize and administer spiritual, educational, motivational and recreational programs for re-entered citizens and their families.
- Help incarcerated and re-entered citizens become responsible and productive citizens.
- Aim to reduce crime by helping offenders and former offenders with the emphasis on education, motivation, self-esteem building and conflict resolution.
- Try to prevent recidivism by empowering re-entered citizens.
- Establish close working and advisory relationship with other same objective interfaith organizations, support and advocacy groups as well as governmental agencies.
- Work closely with referring agencies of city, county, state and federal jails and prisons, parole offices, and other service providers.
that individuals and families who have been affected by mass incarceration may come together to thwart recidivism and youth incarceration. Finally, we will strive to prevent recidivism by empowering re-entered citizens to establish close working and advisory relationships with other same objective interfaith organizations, support and advocacy groups as well as governmental agencies while working closely with referring agencies of city, county, state and federal jails and prisons, parole offices, and other service providers to share resources and reduce areas of overlap and redundancy.
