Our Work

Humane Prison Hospice Project is developing a humanitarian, cost-effective and restorative justice solution to ensure that those aging and dying in prison receive compassionate care.

If you share our commitment to this cause, we would like to hear from you:



    “Before my cellmate of five years passed, he begged me to take care of him. So I did. I fed him. I cleaned him up. When he had to go to the hospital, he fought them. He wanted to come back. Him dying made me want to change. He was my friend. The person who took care of him, that was a good part of me.”

    – Lenny, a Brothers Keeper, trained in end of life care by Humane Prison Hospice Project team 

    Humane Prison Hospice Project is a program of Commonweal.
