Healing Broken Circles Reentry Community Center
We run approximately 30 programs and events annually from the healing arts to creative arts, higher ed to life skills. Examples include the poetry collaboration Convicted Lyrics, which puts incarcerated poets in partnership with free poets; Theatre of Conviction, a company of men who make theatre for both inside and outside audiences; Thriving Path yoga and meditation classes; gaming groups; Spanish classes; fatherhood classes; and personal development and leadership classes. During its history, Healing Broken Circles led the first TedX talk to happen in a correctional facility. Recently, the Community Center has hosted humanities classes in partnership with Otterbein University.
