Prison Possibilities

Prison Possibilities, Inc. was an independent non-profit organization established by the Werner Erhard Foundation that enabled men and women in prisons to alter their predictable futures. This organization's programs demonstrated concrete results in significantly lowering the rate of re arrest and imprisonment among those inmates who participated. A number of the inmates who participated in the programs continue to this day to make the program available to others.
