Keeping FAITH (Families And Inmates Together in Harmony): Ron & Cathy Tijerina

The RIDGE Project, Inc.

The RIDGE Project, Inc. is a Christian, 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 2001 with the goal of empowering, strengthening, and healing families by building strong, thriving relationships.  Unlike other family programs, Keeping FAITH attacks the cultural barriers of incarceration to produce responsible, healthy fathers, families, and citizens.  We are successful – our approach has proven to reduce recidivism by 61%!  However, our programming is not limited to only incarcerated fathers and their families.  We travel and offer training and certification to all types of organizations, including churches and businesses.  Please check out our website for more information. Recipient of the 2010 Smart Marriages Impact Award.
