Mission Statement

The Fortune Society exists to help prisoners, ex-prisoners, and those facing jail or prison time. The Fortune Society works to improve prison conditions and protect the rights of prisoners. Staffed primarily by ex-prisoners, we are committed to providing the foundation from which new lives can be launched. The Fortune Society seeks to reverse current punitive criminal justice policy, and to address the root causes of crime through outreach and advocacy. Fortune is committed to having its services and advocacy shaped by the prison and transition experiences of ex-prisoners. The Fortune Society recognizes the importance of prevention by developing services that reflect the needs of our clients and their families. Fortune acts to reverse the current plague of prison construction and mass incarceration by changing minds and building lives.

Description

Staffed primarily by ex-prisoners, The Fortune Society is a not-for-profit community-based organization dedicated to educating the public about prisons, criminal justice issues, and the root causes of crime. We also help ex-prisoners and at-risk youth break the cycle of crime and incarceration through a broad range of services.
