Joseph House

We’re always here to help.

Joseph House is a nonprofit ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee. We offer a range of services for accompanying our brothers and sisters leaving prison. We seek to support their complete restoration into our communities and neighborhoods.

While we are a Catholic mission, we seek to be sensitive to a diversity of ecumenical and inter-religious needs and accept participants from all faith traditions or no particular faith tradition.

Our Principles


"But simply punishing the broken - walking away from them or hiding them from sight - only ensures that they remain broken and we do, too. There is no wholeness outside of our reciprocal humanity."

Bryan Stevenson

About Us 3
About Us 4

God bends down and uses us, you and me, to be his love and his compassion in the world; he bears our sins, our troubles and our faults. He depends on us to love the world and to show how much he loves it. If we are too concerned with ourselves, we will have no time left for others.

- Mother Theresa

A commitment to full reintegration into society.

Justice is not punishment. At Joseph House, we believe justice is fulfilled when the person is restored in the community.

The art of accompaniment


Some may volunteer by accompanying our residents through challenging tasks. 

Others may wish to volunteer by assisting helping us around the house, creating a sense of belonging for all of us.

Finally, others may simply want to join us on occasion at our community events to learn more.

Responding to Material Needs


There are very real costs to create a home for those hoping to re-enter society after incarceration. 

Joseph House, through the generosity of our donors, has been able to take concrete steps towards justice by restoring the dignity of those leaving the prison systems.

Sharing the Good News


In less than one year our ministry has grown in leaps and bounds, impacting the lives of many for one simple reason: people are sharing the good news. 

We encourage you to share Joseph House with your family, your friends, your community, inviting them to join us as we join those re-entering society after prison.
