What We Do

We begin the re-entry process while an inmate is serving their time.  A prison wing - and even an entire prison -  is converted into a living and learning environment, and programs are presented by volunteers that effect an inner transformation of inmates, enabling them to live with others in mutual support, trust and respect – a critical need in reentry preparation.  While there are re-entry facilities as well as re-entry organizations, these will not reach every inmate.  However, Horizon has the potential to be in each and every prison, and could serve any inmate.
