The mission of Pathway 2 Hope is to promote redemption, dignity and restore hope to individuals who are incarcerated. In this age of mass incarceration and the surging momentum to end it, we must commit to a movement to disrupt the American prison system. We support successful reentry from incarceration while promoting alternatives to incarceration, thus strengthening the fabric of our communities
Pathway 2 Hope seeks to be force for change in the North Carolina criminal justice system. “We talk about numbers, but at the end of the process it’s not a number that’s getting the sentence,” Laura says. “It’s a person, a person with a family from a community.”
Our non-profit organization is focused on advocating, encouraging, aspiring, positive leadership, and supporting individuals who are incarcerated. We do this by advocating for changes within North Carolina legislation and policy changes within North Carolina Department of Corrections and the North Carolina Post-Release Supervision and Parole Commission.
Pathway 2 Hope work’s with various agencies and organizations that support and actively offer rehabilitation services that include cash bail reform, drug and alcohol treatment, mental health treatment, counseling, transitional housing assistance, parenting courses, educational programs, financial education, job placement and training. Pathway 2 Hope works towards being a part of the solution to counteract the effects that incarceration has on those incarcerated and the families. What we propose holds people accountable in an effective way that offers hope to offenders, victims, and communities.
