FRIENDS OUTSIDE IN SONOMA COUNTY

FRIENDS OUTSIDE IN SONOMA COUNTY embraces an underlying belief that every human being has value and has the potential to add value to his or her family and community.

Our mission is to reduce cycles of violence, crime and incarceration by empowering and assisting offenders to make choices for successful re-entry into their families' lives and the community. We act as a bridge to connect the population we serve, the community at large, and the criminal justice system.

We incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization named FRIENDS OUTSIDE IN SONOMA COUNTY in 1986. Under the direction of a volunteer Board of Directors, staff manages programs with the priceless assistance of interns and volunteers. Further, we coordinate with a wide variety of organizations to doubly ensure the highest value of service to our client population.

We share a similar name and purpose with a network of Friends Outside organizations throughout California.
