Making a Difference,
One at a Time.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

Friends Outside Chapters and Affiliates

Grandmother with granddaughter

Friends Outside currently has six chapters/affiliates serving the children and families of incarcerated individuals in local communities.  These organizations are separately incorporated and operate under a memo of understanding with Friends Outside.

Chapters and affiliates provide services and programs within county jails, support groups and emergency assistance for family members, children's social and recreational programs, assistance with visiting at area jails, and resources and referrals to people re-entering to the community from jail and prison.
