Our Brothers’ Keepers mission Our Brothers’ Keepers of Southern Illinois is a Christian faith-based organization that is dedicated to the full integration of formerly incarcerated persons, “returning citizens”, into the St. Clair County, Illinois, community.

Our Brothers’ Keepers assists returning citizens in attaining productive citizenship by participation in reentry services, including supportive housing, life and career skills, and counseling services.

Productive citizenship is the full integration of a person into the St. Clair County, Illinois, community. Full integration is demonstratred by a stable lifestyle which includes dignified housing, necessary identification, employment and/or a reliable income (such as SSI, SS, disability), possession of life skills, a sincere willingness to become sober/addiction free as needed, and strong family and faith-based relationships. With collaboration as the foundation, Our Brothers’ Keepers reaches out to all social and human service providers, faith communities and government agencies, to help in the process of full integration.
