Approximately 5,000 women are incarcerated in Virginia. Without the assistance and support from programs like Friends of Guest House, over 70% will likely reoffend upon release. Help us raise $500 for basic essentials the women of Guest House need to successfully rebuild their lives.

Friends of Guest House operates a Residential program with 10 beds for women convicted of non-violent offences who are recently released from prison of jail. Guest House has expanded to also include Aftercare, Outreach, and Speakers Bureau programs to offer further assistance to female ex-offenders.

Friends of Guest House is a safe haven for women recently released from prison or jail who sincerely want to change their lives. The program helps clients reestablish themselves as law abiding citizens by assisting them in finding affordable housing and secure employment, while also helping them form a secure social network. Friends of Guest House transforms women’s lives and creates a better community in the process.

The Running Brooke Fund is willing to match any donation up to $500! That means your $5, $10, or even $50 donation will be doubled!
