Mission Statement

We are a community of volunteers teaching decision making skills to incarcerated individuals empowering them to return to society as responsible members.


Thresholds is a nonprofit organization that teaches a six-step decision-making course to interested inmates in Delaware County, PA. Our program currently operates at two places
(1) George W. Hill Correctional Facility , Thornton, PA (GWHCF)
(Formerly Delaware County Prison)
(2) State Correctional Institution at Chester (SCI-Chester).
We also provide volunteers to the Be Proud program for juveniles

Through the use of our Guide booklet, volunteers teach inmates, or "clients", how to make decisions by defining situations, setting goals, develop possibilities for reaching their goals, evaluate these, decide on a course of action, and to stay focused until their goals are achieved.
Thresholds in Delaware County is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors,and currently employs paid coordinators at GWHCF and SCI-Chester.
