Unfortunately, Due to the recent development of events (COVID-19) and the guidance from the Governor’s office to avoid large gatherings, we are cancelling our Gala event.

Truly, the need has never been greater to provide services to the families of the incarcerated as they struggle with the challenges of being separated from their loved one and navigating through the Coronavirus situation.

Every DONATION Helps!

We are committed to continuing our services to the families we serve through virtual programs, and face to face assistance when needed.  We need help to stabilize as many families as possible as fear rocks their already unstable world.

The Ridge Project is setting up a fund to support these families in need – please consider donating to join us in helping to stabilize families

Within Prison Walls... In Your Community... Across the State... And Throughout the World WE ARE KEEPING FAMILIES TOGETHER!
