Bob Barker Company Foundation
"An estimated 96% of incarcerated individuals will be released from prison."
Historically about 70% of those released will return to incarceration within 3 years.
We’re working to defeat recidivism
Bob Barker Company has been serving the physical needs of incarcerated individuals since 1972. The Bob Barker Company Foundation was founded in 2009 to give back to the incarcerated community in order to prepare them physically, spiritually and emotionally for successful reentry into society. The Foundation works directly with nonprofit and governmental entities, providing support and capacity building for proven, cost-effective delivery of services that reduce recidivism.
Some of our partners include:
Bridges to Life – Texas, North Carolina
Changed Choices – North Carolina
Metanoia Prison Ministries – Tennessee, Georgia
Jobs for Life – North Carolina
Men of Valor – Tennessee
Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers – North Carolina
The Vision of the Bob Barker Company Foundation is to reduce recidivism by seeing the lives of incarcerated individuals changed forever by serving God, family and community.
The Mission of the Bob Barker Company Foundation is to develop and support programs that help incarcerated individuals successfully re-enter society and stay out of prison for life.
As leaders in a corrections-related industry, Bob Barker Company strives to help address the staggering national three-year recidivism rate of almost 70 percent. Each year, the Bob Barker Company tithes a minimum of 10 percent of its net profits to socially responsible activities including the Bob Barker Company Foundation, which is currently the only foundation in the United States with the sole mission to reduce recidivism.
Since its inception in 2009, the Bob Barker Foundation has reached more than 1.5 million people by granting over $3.2 million to programs that help inmates successfully re-enter society. And thanks to the amazing programs that the Bob Barker Foundation is able to support, the recidivism rate for members of grantee programs is only 12.2 percent.
