Prison Fellowship is a multi-faceted ministry that reaches out to prisoners and ex-prisoners and their families. Several of its programs are particularly relevant to those involved in reentry ministries. "Justice Fellowship" works to reform the criminal justice system to reflect principles of restorative justice. Prison Fellowship's Inner Change Freedom Initiative is a round-the-clock biblically based program for prisoners that has significantly reduced recidivism. "Operation Starting Line" is an evangelistic outreach partnership between Prison Fellowship and over 25 other prison ministries aimed at reaching every prisoner in the United States. PF then follows up with discipleship and mentoring for prisoners that respond.
