Instead of decrying prisons and recidivism, rather than simply bemoaning the number of men and women behind bars, The Lionheart Foundation from its inception has created programs seeking to heal the causes of violence, anger, and frustration that underlie whatever crime brought individuals into prison. Lionheart’s various programs teach tools and methods to develop inmates’ self-knowledge, for the individuals to defuse violent tendencies in themselves and situations and support their rediscovery of their self-worth. I would wish the Houses of Healing programs could reach the rest of society outside incarceration, as well. They are that valuable. Since 2001, it has been my privilege to support The Lionheart Foundation in the hope my monetary gifts aid the programs important work, all the staff, and each person these programs has touched and helped.
