HELPING FAITH COMMUNITIES
WELCOME PEOPLE LEAVING PRISON

Our goal is to help faith communities become places where people who leave
prison find acceptance. We maintain a diverse directory of faith communities who
have declared a commitment to welcoming prison leavers.

We have 197 registered communities
across 6 major world faiths

Registering with The Welcome Directory allows faith communities to identify their
willingness to welcome and appropriately support prison leavers.
