Get your life back

Aman in prison - Harken House

Incarceration: Locked Away and Disconnected

Imagine being stripped of your freedom and confined to a cell, cut off from the world and the people you love. For many incarcerated individuals, this is a daily reality that can feel isolating, intimidating, and even impossible. But there is hope.

At Hearken House, we understand that the journey from incarceration to re-entry is a difficult one, and we're here to guide you every step of the way.

Cross the Bridge to Freedom

As a peer-to-peer therapeutic community, Hearken House is uniquely positioned to help incarcerated individuals overcome the obstacles they face. Our community is made up of individuals who have been through the same challenges and have found success on the other side. By sharing their experiences and providing support, our peers help guide individuals towards a brighter future.

If you're ready to start a new chapter in your story, join us at Hearken House. Our peers and Christian-based approach can help you overcome the challenges of re-entry and find your path to success. You are the hero of your own story, and we're here to help guide you towards a brighter future.

We believe all lasting happiness in life is determined by our capacity for truth, love and connection.

Core Beliefs

All you have to do is request an application to begin seeking the help you need

If you are incarcerated, write us a letter asking for our help. We will mail you an application so we may learn a little bit about your story. If you meet the basic qualifications, we will coordinate with your facility’s staff to conduct a teleconference interview. If we feel you would be a suitable candidate, we will provide you with a letter to share with the parole board indicating your acceptance into our program if we have an available bed at the time of your release and if you are accepted by the local parole agent.

If you are a family member or friend of an incarcerated loved one who could use our help, and they meet our basic qualifications, have them write to us for an application or mail them an application yourself.

Who this is for

This program is available to those who are willing and determined to change.

This is not for
