Did you know?

The United States incarcerates more of its citizens than any other nation in the world. Increasing from less than 200,000 in 1972 to 2.2 million today, with another 4.5 million people under probation or parole nationwide. 

The United States has 5 percent of the world’s population but nearly 25 percent of its prisoners.


Today, over 50 percent of prison and jail inmates in the United States have a diagnosed mental illness, a rate nearly five times greater than that of the general adult population.  Nearly one in five prison and jail inmates has a serious mental illness.

    Peaceprints of WNY

    At Peaceprints of WNY we believe that hope is not a way out but a way through. It is our mission to strengthen our communities by rebuilding the lives of the individuals we serve. Only then will we achieve our vision to have a just society in which all have equal opportunities to live productive lives.

    Community Programs

    Peaceprints of WNY offers a wide array of services to the formerly incarcerated and the greater community. Services include: Support Groups, Empower Youth, Hope Campus & a food pantry.

    Housing Programs

    Peaceprints of WNY recognizes that safe, affordable and stable housing is one of the biggest barriers for successful  reentry from prison back to the community; we support this need with our portfolio of transitional, supportive and independent  housing options.


    Meeting our goals requires persistence and many hands. The backbone of our organization is our volunteers. It takes many volunteers to attend our support groups, perform community outreach, and help out at our events.  We invite you to join our team!
