Welcome to Concord Prison Outreach

Concord Prison Outreach is a coalition of faith communities and individuals committed to helping people in prison build better lives for themselves and their families. We recruit, train, and support volunteers to go behind the walls and teach skills that will help people succeed when leaving prison. We organize a holiday gift bag project and deliver needed gifts to 1700 people housed in the two prisons in Concord, Massachusetts. We also sponsor events in the community to educate the public about prisons and justice.

We welcome you to join us in our mission to bring support and human kindness to the incarcerated in our communities. Sign up for our mailing list to receive our newsletter.  Browse our website to learn more about our programming, and contact us to learn more about volunteer opportunities in the Concord prisons. If you cannot volunteer, consider donating to help us pay for text books, and other teaching materials to support our volunteers. Thank you for your time and attention.
