Your chance to prevent an INJUSTICE

Richard Midkiff transformed his life while incarcerated and post-incarceration. He has dedicated his life to serve others. As the Marshall Project reports, while incarcerated Richard “started a program called Story Time Dads, which helped incarcerated fathers record videos of themselves reading books so that their children at home could read along with them. He was also the creator and program coordinator of a prison school called SAGE, which provided dozens of classes on topics including public speaking, interviewing, financial literacy, real estate, creative writing and philosophy.”

Upon release Richard has begun his life again after spending nearly half of it behind bars. He recently proposed to his fiancée, works a fulltime job as a paralegal but in spite of all these changes the state of Florida wants him to go back to prison based on a legal technicality.

We at Joseph House encourage you to read more about Richard’s life and dire situation. We can do something though! We can create justice together!

Please sign this petition and stand with our brother Richard Midkiff…his freedom is at stake

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.
