    Why should you sponsor?

    Reaching Out from Within is a non-profit organization co-founded in 1982 by a lifers club Lansing Correctional Facility resident who wanted to gain insight on the core roots of violence. Through meetings with fellow residents a curriculum emerged which became known as the BlueBook, utilized in weekly group meetings this book generates conversations around trauma, domestic violence, positive transformation, and a host of others. Our groups are now in every prison in Kansas, 3 in North Carolina, 2 in Missouri and actively/ rapidly growing into other states.

    Sponsoring any event hosted by ROFW is a progessive statement that affirms your belief in the Courage to Change. We work viamently towards a just and humane system that operates in positive transformation and rehabilitation wherever possible. All funds raised go directly to programming and expansion efforts- ROFW is interested in cultivation of partnerships.

    I am Eliza Barr, Executive Director for ROFW and I have spent nearly 15 years working in reentry services for our nations justice involved. I decided to join ROFW when I had the opportunity to see the caliber of board members, volunteers, and staff that chose to align themselves with this organization. Former corrections staff, justice involved, state employees, and humanitarians all held a profound belief in the work done by ROFW. Once I attended a BlueBook meeting I shared that same belief, this program was developed by inmates for inmates which makes it groundbreaking and effective.
