Mission Statement

Reaching Beyond Bars was founded to help both youth and adults returning home from incarceration build a firm foundation to make new and better life choices, while keeping Christ at the center of their lives.

Description

Reaching Beyond Bars was founded to help both youth and adults returning home from incarceration build a firm foundation to make new and better life choices, while keeping Christ at the center of their lives. Tens of thousands of Georgia’s adult and juvenile offenders are released annually, and reenter our communities without a solid plan. Although most have the best of intentions, wanting to lead a normal life as law-abiding citizens upon release, they face a variety of obstacles once they’re home. Most have very minimal job skills, lack formal education and experience discrimination in both the housing and job markets because of their past. As a result, they become statistics-the under-educated, the unskilled, the unemployed, the impoverished, the homeless. Our goal is to give people the second chance they deserve.
