Social Purpose Corrections eliminates the profit motive and puts expert reformers in charge of prisons. We reinvest every penny into rehabilitating our residents, empowering our staff, and breaking the cycle of mass incarceration.

Our business model is a new concept in managing secure correctional and re-entry facilities. All net revenues from federal and state contracts will be reinvested in resident safety, programming, education, healthcare and staff development—no shareholders or red tape.Learn more about us
