Welcoming Reverend Doris Green

Last month we invited Reverend Doris Green from Transforming Re-entry Services in Chicago to share with us her stories and wisdom from 38 years of serving the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated.

While sharing a meal with us, Rev. Green emphasized the everyday relationships that mobilizes a community working to uphold the dignity of every person. We are most appreciative for the time she took out of her busy schedule while in Tallahassee to visit our community at Joseph House. Her vast 38 years of experience in prison ministry and walking with those reentering society was a blessing to us all. She shared with us her vision of a more just and merciful society and encouraged us to always stay focused on each person God sends us to walk alongside. We are grateful for her visit with us at JH!

Godspeed Rev. Green with all the good you do in Chicago!

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.
