The mission of Friends Outside is to assist children and families, prisoners, and former prisoners with the immediate and long-term effects of incarceration, and to act as a bridge between those we serve, the community at large, and the criminal justice system, thereby enhancing the character of justice.
FOLA is the longest-running organization of its kind to provide re-entry services for individuals, families, and children impacted by the criminal justice system. Our programs and services results in strengthened families, reduced crime, and improved life trajectories for the children in these families. Its threefold budgetary and programmatic growth since 2011 reflects not only the need for its services but also the organization’s potential.
