Durham’s mentoring program Durham Companions’ recent history is detailed. The group has experienced some poor leadership lately and was in threat of being defunded. The group has a strong history of mentoring troubled youth in an attempt to increase school attendance and reduce juvenile crime. Funding has been cut by the state, but after some criticism by Durham’s county commissioners, the group will continue to receive funding and mentor youth.

Bo Lozoff is the founder of Kindness House and former director of the Human Kindness Foundation. The foundation practiced interfaith prison ministry and the Kindness House was an spiritual living community for parolees.

Former volunteers, parolees, Lozoff, Departments of Corrections, and religious studies experts are interviewed and talk about the allegations. Lozoff has decided to close the parole program due to his unconventional sexual behavior, but is still mentoring inmates and actively ministering.
