About Philippine Jesuit Prison Service, Foundation, Inc. 

Location: New Bilibid Prison Reservation, Muntinlupa City

Mission Statement: 

PJPS is a non-stock non-profit organization that provides services, and holistic rehabilitation, to the corrections community, particularly with the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) in Muntinlupa City. It is a socio-pastoral apostolate of the Society of Jesus (Philippine Province).

Tracing the Roots

PJPS was born in 1994 when the Society of Jesus recognized the prison service that was started by Fr. Victor Labao at the New Bilibid Prisons in Muntinlupa City as an official apostolate of its Philippine Province. Its involvement inside the National Penitentiary was initially pastoral and sacramental. Active engagement in the ministry, however, led Jesuit priests and volunteers to also work in whatever program and service that could best help in the holistic development of the inmates. 

Serving as an NGO

In 1995, hence, PJPS was enlisted as a non-stock non-profit organization at the Securities and Exchange Commission. As the institution slowly evolved as it responded to the needs of the prison community, the organization was re-incorporated in 2007 as there was an increasing need to be more organized, structured, and formal. This helped PJPS to be more effective in the development work inside the national penitentiary. It was also a move to step up efforts to raise funds that will ensure the financial sustainability of the organization and the continuation of its programs. 

In 2012, the organization was accredited by the Department of Social Welfare (community-based) Agency. Later in 2018, DSWD issued a Certificate of Accreditation to PJPS for having satisfactorily complied with the first-level standards in the implementation of community-based programs and services for children, youth, inmates, families, and communities.
