Saint Leonard’s empowers formerly incarcerated men and women to lead whole and productive lives.

At Saint Leonard's Ministries, we believe...

1. Everybody matters

Everybody is somebody. The past does not define any person's worth. We believe in people before they believe in themselves, carrying their love, hope, and respect until they can carry it.

2. Love heals

Everyone is worthy of love and love makes life worth living. Our love may look like listening, patience, taking time, and doing small things to help.

3. Hope motivates

Every decision is an opportunity. If you have breath in your lungs, there is a chance for change. We kindle the spark of hope.

4. Respect empowers

Everyone is cut from the same cloth with inherent dignity and humanity. We are all individuals and deserve to be treated as such. Receiving respect helps us respect ourselves.

5. Dedication rewards

Every polite step taken brings a reward. Milestones matter and are celebrated. We encourage our residents to achieve all that they can; they determine their goals.

"I am worthy. And I am respected today....and I deserve a second chance."
