Through The National Solitary Project,
The Lionheart Foundation will bring life-altering programming to 2,000 prisoners in solitary confinement across the United States.
The harmful impact of solitary confinement is indisputable.
Most people who are placed in solitary are there for significant lengths of time (ranging from a few weeks to many years) without support, without programming, and ultimately, without hope.
For more than 25 years, Lionheart has been developing transformative programming that is uniquely designed to support incarcerated individuals. The National Solitary Project will provide prisoners in solitary confinement with access to programming that serves as a life-line.
With special funding from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Lionheart delivered a program targeted specifically for people in solitary confinement. During the initial grant period, over 400 incarcerated individuals participated in the course. Lionheart received an unprecedented 164 evaluations. 100% of respondents indicated that they would recommend the program to others.
Seeing the power of the self-study program, Lionheart created the Making Time Count (MTC) workbook in order to make the Houses of Healing course available to those in solitary units across the country. The feedback continues to be outstanding.
