The Fringe Coffee House exists to empower inmates, ex-felons and those on the fringes of society to live healthy, whole lives. Part of the way we accomplish this is by going inside the walls of Lebanon and Dayton Correctional every Tuesday. Through our 10 week prison music therapy program, Scars and Bars we explore the root cause of incarceration and destructive behavior. Through this program we build kinship with those incarcerated and establish a reliable and steady mentoring relationship.
Upon release, we provide gainful employment through a 1 year paid job training program at The Fringe Coffee House or other social enterprise. We also create a custom holistic re-entry support plan for each person that will walk through our doors. At the Fringe Coffee House, our employees will build their work history, learn healthy people skills, how to problem solve, work ethic and more and also regain a sense of dignity after incarceration.
