We Need Your Help!

Without kind and generous people like you, this work would not be possible. Help us help those fathers, mothers, sons and daughters behind bars that have been separated from their family and society. They are people too and when we come together to help those in need, we celebrate humanity.

We give back

Since 2017, UBB has distributed over 25,700 newspapers weekly and monthly, over 16,530 Study Bibles, about 6,320 books, and a little over 11,250 hygiene kits. In the past 7 years, UBB has donated over $14,660 worth of food for meals prepared for both prison staff and inmates.

go big or go home - Hygiene Kits

Instead of giving travel-sized or mini-bottled containers, each UBB hygiene kit comes with a full-sized shampoo bottle paired with conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrush, soap bars and deodorant.

About the study Bible

The Study Bibles we gift inside prison cost $100.00 each, thanks to sponsors we hand them out to anybody who requests. At the moment we provide both English and Spanish copies. The Bible is written in NKJV (New King James Version) and has commentary to help the readers understand the Word of God.

Newspapers handed out weekly

UBB classes are held by volunteers, every week in more than 8 different units in Texas alone. At each of these classes, weekly published newspapers are brought in and distributed. The content in the newspapers include motivational messages, helpful resources, testimonials of over-comers and more.

UBB – Universal Beyond Bars is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization and any donation made is tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S. law. To claim a donation as a deduction on your U.S. taxes, UBB will provide, upon request, a credible letter for submission and record.
