Philanthropy is an expression of our values, and a way for us to connect with our community beyond the law. In that respect we provide some financial support to the following organisations:
Luke 15 House
- The Organization: Luke 15 House (website) - The Luke 15 House was founded in 1992. In an atmosphere of acceptance, love, and understanding, men who are in transition from a prison environment, or others who sincerely want a new start in life, are assisted in overcoming the obstacles that once held them back.
