New Zealand taxpayers pay approximately $92,000 to keep a person in prison for a year. It costs Pillars approximately $6,000 to help a family stay out of prison.
Partner with us to break the cycle of intergenerational offending so that the children of prisoners do not follow in the footsteps of their imprisoned parent. Our programmes work!
No matter what its size, every contribution is important. Your gift will enable Pillars to continue providing much needed children and family services.
