COMPARE THE FACTS

INCARCERATION

The cost to incarcerate one inmate in PA:

$42,000/year

TRAINING

One-time TIP
training cost:
$7,800

Average First Year TIP Graduate contribution to society:

$5,869 (in taxes, etc.)

Over the last 10 years it cost taxpayers

$25,200,000,000

to incarcerate the same number of people (600)
that we were able to train.

Over the last 10 years we’ve proudly trained

600 people

with skills that allow them to earn

a living wage of $15+/hr.

Our first year graduates from TIP have had the potential to contribute

$50,000+ in taxes

Re-entering society, those with no training or support

have few real job prospects and a high chance of returning to the prison population.

Our graduates work with us to learn life and trade skills to be

contributing members of society – 

inspiring their friends, families, and the neighborhoods they call home.

A BETTER SYSTEM

Our system is broken.

Many talk about solutions.

We’ve been solving them brick by brick.
