Healing Communities trains and inspires churches and communities, inside and outside of prison, to support the restoration of those affected by incarceration. We collaborate with churches and local service providers to support former prisoners, their families, and their communities.  We advocate for a more restorative criminal justice system.  Neighborhoods can be made safer and healthier through a restorative approach to prisoners and those affected by crime.

About the Organization

Healing Communities is a framework for a distinct form of ministry for men and women returning from or at risk of incarceration, their families and the larger community. Healing Communities challenges congregations to become Stations of Hope for those persons affected by the criminal justice system.

We train communities of faith to:
* walk with the returning citizens (connect returning citizens to resources that will help set attainable goals)
* help them connect with their faith (provide spiritual support)
* open their hearts to them (foster positive relationships)
* embrace them (extend open and affirming fellowship)
* provide understanding (collaboration with family and friends to rebuild relationships)
* advocate for political change on a local, state, and federal level

We provide support and technical assistance to faith communities by:
* offering seminars in restorative justice, family reintegration and family support
* identifying resources and building networks for capacity building, service delivery and advocacy
* offering opportunities for peer learning...
