With the Eye of a Prisoner

The images on our homepage 'buttons' and many throughout the following pages are the work of creative prisoners who send their art to COMPASSION WORKS FOR ALL. They share their talent as a gift and as a story of their experience.

Volunteers and staff have catalogued 200 pieces of work, and many are shared in Art at Large, our website gallery. Tour and enjoy.

Welcome to

Give today and support hundreds of incarcerated individuals who can't access these resources on their own. Your gift to COMPASSION helps us produce and distribute newsletters, radio programs and updated resources for prisoners. Thank you for expressing your own compassion in this very practical way.

For Prisoners and Their Families

On this website, you'll find practical information and encouragement for those who are incarcerated, those who are re-entering community life and the families that surround them.

We teach compassion especially to the disenfranchised and those in prison, to offer healing and hope, transforming lives and communities.
