You have many choices on where to donate your time and money. Here are a few reasons Horizon is a good investment:
• The cost to send a participant through our program is $1,600.
• In 2015, the state prison population surpassed 50,000.
• In Ohio, the typical inmate has a 27% chance of returning to prison within three years of being released.
• Horizon lowers that rate to just 9%.
• For every 10 Horizon graduates who stay out of prison, the state saves $260,000 per year.
• After being released from prison, most of our graduates become and stay gainfully employed, which reduces the need for government assistance for food and shelter.
