Lionheart provides:

  • exceptional quality rehabilitative resources to be used directly by prisoners,at-risk adolescents and teen parents
  • resources and training for professionals who work with these populations in a prevention, rehabilitation and re-entry capacity; and
  • direct emotional literacy education programs for adults in prison; at-risk youth in juvenile institutions and public and private programs and schools; and at-risk teen parents in shelters, hospitals, social service agencies, schools and other community programs.

Lionheart also conducts public education on the need for transforming our nation’s prisons and juvenile institutions into places where nurturing emotional (re)habilitation, inspiring positive values, and imparting behavior patterns necessary for healthy functioning in our communities are primary goals.

Lionheart Values:

Justice
(Restorative) Supporting the emotional health of people who have been marginalized so that they can unmask their potential and live productive lives.

Excellence
Creating and producing exceptional quality resources and delivering outstanding programs and trainings to serve our target populations.

Competence
Identifying a vast array of programs and institutions and effectively getting our resources to those they are intended to serve.

Generosity
