OUR MISSION

After coming home from prison, our returning citizens are frequently reincarcerated—and we ask, why is it so hard to make better choices? This is where KBDB steps in.

We help prevent the vicious cycle of repeat offenders by equipping returning citizens with support, trust, encouragement, and a renewed direction forward.
