Inspiring Change in the American Justice System

Chicago Beyond works to increase safety and wellness for all people impacted by the American justice system. Through our investments in solutions led by those closest to the issues, the creation and dissemination of our Holistic Safety Framework, and our support of correctional institutions to increase physical and psychological safety, Chicago Beyond is creating the conditions for all community members – inside and outside of correctional walls – to be and feel protected, resilient, and whole.
