Is someone you love in prison or jail? If so, you are not alone.

Friends Outside in Los Angeles County is a bridge between families, children, and prisoners affected by the unintentional consequences of incarceration and the support and services necessary to address their immediate and long-term needs. If Friends Outside cannot provide the appropriate support or services, we assist our clients in accessing them through other community resources.

Our History

Friends Outside in Los Angeles County (FOLAC) was established in 1972 at the suggestion of the late Federal Judge William P. Gray, and Martha Jane Dowds. Staff and volunteers have been recognized for outstanding contributions to the community by, among others, the Los Angeles City Council, the Director of the California Department of Corrections, the Los Angeles County Commission for Women and the City of Pasadena.
