About the Osborne Association
Osborne Association serves individuals, families, and communities affected by the criminal justice system. Founded by Thomas Mott Osborne, now considered the “pioneer and prophet of prison reform,” Osborne has a nearly 90-year history of leadership in working with currently and formerly incarcerated adults, children, and their families.

Osborne is known for developing effective programs that offer a broad range of education, workforce, and treatment services to more than 10,000 people each year. As the oldest and most experienced organization in New York State serving people involved with the criminal legal system, Osborne operates at community sites in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Buffalo, Manhattan, and Newburgh, and in 30 correctional facilities across the state, offering opportunities for those most affected by the criminal legal system to heal, repair harm, and thrive. Osborne challenges systems rooted in racism and retribution and fights for policies and practices that promote true safety, justice, and liberation.
