The mission of Benevolence Farm is to provide an opportunity for women leaving prison to live and work on a farm where they grow food, nourish self, and foster community.
From the “Doing Time” study we have learned that the first three months following release from prison present major challenges for women – including living with unmet health needs, little social support and lack of access to resources. More specifically, our peer researchers explain that the first week after release is an extremely difficult period where strong temptations to use drugs often over rule intentions to stay substance free. To translate this knowledge into action we have partnered with Women in2 Healing, to develop, pilot and evaluate a peer mentoring program.
Literacy On-Site makes literacy easy: it brings tutoring into social programs where low-literacy adults adults already are, and build their tools for success.

Using an alternative prison model, which immerses prisoners in an education environment that teaches skills and more importantly values such as empathy and kindness, Faustino has created micro-societies that enable inmates to learn to live as they would outside the prison walls. A key aspect of this model has been to radically reformulate the roles of the two largest groups involved in prison life, guards and inmates.
Transforming inmates into entrepreneurs in Texas — and saving millions of tax dollars
Texas has been the center of a swirl of controversy lately in two very different arenas: the state’s enthusiastic embrace of the death penalty, and Republican frontrunner Rick Perry’s touted track record of job creation. Perry’s history of job creation has come under fire from numerous critics, as well as a new study revealing that Texas’s poverty levels rank the second highest in the nation.
But deep in the heart of Texas, there’s a promising light for real job creation — and for bringing positive change to the criminal justice system.

The Ohio Green Prison Project (OGPP) offers green job-training programs for incarcerated individuals that reduce prisons’ environmental impact and operating costs. Research shows that stable employment is an important factor in reducing recidivism. We provide people with job and soft-skills training and the opportunity to earn industry certifications in a growing field, to put them on a promising career path upon release.
The Doe Fund (TDF) believes in the transformative power of paid work and seeks to promote the expansion of our innovative, mixed-market model—one that leads to reductions in poverty, unemployment, crime and criminal recidivism, substance abuse, and dependence on public assistance—across the country. The social and economic net gain from reversing these cycles has widespread impact.
Workforce aims to disrupt the revolving door of recidivism. Over 700,000 individuals return from prison across the United States each year, and two-thirds of these will return to prison within three years. A significant factor in this recidivism rate is the lack of employment opportunities. A felony record represents a very high hurdle to employment. In contrast, at the center of Workforce's program stands employment. Every program participant receives a job and a paycheck – real money for real work – and the dignity that accompanies employment.
