Effective, just & humane responses to the causes & consequences of crime
The John Howard Society is a voluntary, non-profit agency that provides intervention, residential, employment and related programs and services to adult and youth involved in the criminal justice system.
Peer-reviewed science argues that punishment does not make people more pro-social – and that it often makes them worse.
Our provincial organization, the John Howard Society of Newfoundland & Labrador, delivers best-practice services to pro-socially integrate persons at the end of their sentence and prevent people from coming into conflict with the law in the first place. Our policy and position papers and presentations advocate for legislation that accords with principles of fundamental justice.
