Prison Project

We can't change the past, but we can affect our future.

Project Mañana believes that prison should be a place of rehabilitation. Changing an inmate's heart is the first step in creating a productive and rehabilitated member of society. This project provides prison inmates with a first-hand experience of God's love through discipleship workshops.

In 2011, Project Mañana formed the Institute For Authentic Manhood;™ and has assembled a team of experts who work directly with inmates and their families. The Institute also serves prison officials and men in various communities throughout the Dominican Republic. In 2017, Project Mañana expanded its services to women by launching the Institute For Authentic Womanhood™.

The Prison Project is also home to the annual Returning Hearts Celebration; where inmates have the opportunity to spend the day with their children as we convert the prison yard into a fun carnival atmosphere. Learn More.
