OUR MISSION

Nolef Turns Inc. is a charitable organization, not a government agency. It depends on volunteers and the generosity of people like you to perform our mission. Our mission is to help reduce recidivism by helping those with justice involvement and their families successfully thrive post-conviction. Our vision is to be a leader in decreasing the prison population by supporting and empowering those who are most affected by crime, trauma, and incarceration. We will treat everyone with dignity and respect and will not pass judgement, as we seek justice and redemption. We will be community centered and act according to the greater good of the people we serve. To the best of our ability, we strive to do no harm to the people we serve and the communities we live in.
 
WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES
We are an all volunteer group. We are truly a grassroots organization and our work is deeply rooted in service. With every donation, an average of about 91 cents of every dollar Nolef Turns Inc. spends is invested in community, humanitarian services and programs. Everything we do depends on the needs of the people that we serve.
