Program areas at Mural Arts Philadelphia

Restorative justice the restorative justice program facilitates the forging and growth of strong, positive bonds between incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals, young adults on probation, and their respective communities. Through neighborhood improvement projects, current inmates, probationers, and parolees are connected to opportunities to learn new skills and make positive contributions to communities impacted by crime. Participants receive art instruction, work on new murals, and perform other community service work, helping to shift community perceptions through these constructive contributions. In fy19, the restorative justice program enrolled 93 people in re-entry programs, 11 people in prison programs, and more than 2,000 people at public events. One-year recidivism average = 10% (one-year recidivism rate across the state hovers around 35%). One-year job placement average = 90%.

Porch light - the porch light program offers a robust, arts-based approach to community wellness through partnerships with a variety of public clinics and social service agencies throughout Philadelphia.

We also reached an additional 2,000 people through public events like Mural dedications, paint days, and panel discussions, and we met that level of engagement.
