Prison Fellowship International

We help restore justice and healing to families and communities in response to crime.

Prison Fellowship International is a global association of 120 national affiliates, working with the assistance of over 45,000 volunteers, to promote human dignity and the transformation of prisoners.

Prison Fellowship International is the world's largest and most extensive criminal justice ministry.

Mission: The mission of Prison Fellowship International is to proclaim and demonstrate God's love by reaching out to prisoners, ex-prisoners, their families, victims and the community. PFI is a ministry of transformation and reconciliation. The heart of Jesus' teaching is love and forgiveness - living in peace with God and with one another, even those who offend us.

So grateful for the invitation to hear Emily Colson's inspiring testimony and learn more, through her eyes, about the legacy of her father, Prison Fellowship and Prison Fellowship International founder, Chuck Colson.

Inmate freed thanks to Trump's prison reform dedicates life to helping others

What a beautiful testimony on a life transformed through the work of God and the outcome of successful, faith-based rehabilitative programs for prisoners. The First Step Act is a huge step in prison reform in the U.S. Congrats to the efforts of Prison Fellowship! One of the first prison inmates to be released under a criminal justice reform law signed by President Donald Trump has dedicated the rest of his free life to helping those in need — a calling he said God has placed on his heart.

A person is always more than the mistakes he or she makes.

Prison Fellowship Singapore

No one is beyond redemption. Prison Fellowship Singapore shares the transformative story of a staff member.

“I consider myself to be the biggest trouble-maker, out of the eight children my parents have,” Peter Soo admitted candidly. His journey from being a gangster, drug addict and compulsive gambler to a prison counsellor preaching about the redeeming love of God has left many in both shock and awe -- especially his friends from the triad.

YVONNE | Rwanda - Prison Fellowship International

Children of prisoners are well acquainted with the unexpected twists and turns life can take: One day they're a carefree child and the next their mother or father is ripped from their home and sent to prison. It's truly amazing the difference one sponsor can make in the life of a child in need. In 2018, you helped us care for nearly 5,700 children of prisoners in 8 countries. Read Yvonne's story. Yvonne lost connection with both of her parents when they went to prison, but forging a connection with a caring supporter has changed her life.

This day in 2013, we launched our program in three pilot countries: Cambodia, Costa Rica and Nepal. Today, we're caring for 5,740 children in 8 countries.
