The Alternatives to Violence Project

Changes Lives

For more than twenty years, New Foundations has helped inmates in Colorado jails and prisons.

90% of prisoners will come back into our communities.

Through the Alternatives to Violence workshops, we give people the tools that they can use to change their lives. Participants learn new ways to react to potentially violent situations – new ways to respond to conflict and frustration.

We don’t lecture or preach. Through our series of intensive workshops, we give people the life-changing experiences – the profound interactions with others – that unlock the untapped strength that they have inside.

Every prison workshop is facilitated by trained community
volunteers.
