Abstract: Criminal justice organizations benefit greatly from the involvement of people of faith who provide an enormous resource of highly motivated volunteers and professionals. This report looks at how people of faith work with or in criminal justice institutions to reconcile, restore, and nurture individuals back into families and communities. The report discusses how people of faith serve across the entire criminal justice spectrum and forge effective partnerships including alternative programs, corrections and rehabilitative programs, child and youth programs, probation, parole and reentry programs, victim support programs, and crime prevention and community policing programs. The report is a sampling of what is happening wherever people of faith and criminal justice agencies work in creative partnerships to prevent crime and address its effects.
