Working Towards a Brighter Future

 

WHO WE ARE

From Prison to Promise is a Virginia based 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to provide a support system for those who have been affected by incarceration, reduce/eliminate the school-to-prison pipeline, and act as a voice for those who feel silenced by their trauma. Our vision is to partner with the community and peers affected by incarceration to provide a foundation for an independent society through public service.
