Criminal Justice Reform

The Ladies of Hope Ministries (LOHM) works to eradicate poverty and create alternatives to incarceration, decarceration, and post-incarceration opportunities by providing access to food and housing and resources for education, entrepreneurship, and sustainability through advocacy. LOHM addresses the crisis of poverty and incarceration of women and girls through two core agency pillars: Sustainability and Direct Services and Empowerment and Advocacy. The latter pillar encompasses two signature programs: The Faces of Women Imprisoned (FWOI) and EPIC Ambassadors.
