About Us


The John Howard Society of Manitoba supports men in conflict with the law- before, during and after incarceration.

We are one of a very few number of organizations that provide support and guidance to men so they will not re-offend once they return to the community and the same stresses that contributed to them committing crime in the first place.

Our programs and services help address the root causes of crime, build healthy families and safer communities.

In the process of making positive life changes, these men are having a positive impact in their families and communities.
