Fringe Industries serves as a re-entry and recovery initiativeand hub situated in Hamilton, Ohio. For close to two decades,
we've been instilling hope throughout Ohio by offering kinship, training and support to individuals who were once grappling with addiction or
incarceration. Our aim is to empower them to transform their lives, enabling them to actively contribute to our community.


Transformation Story

"Anyone who would've told me a year ago that I would have my own place, my own car and a great relationship with my kids, I would've never believed them. The Fringe has given me hope, peace, and a chance at life all together after serving 5 years. I still can't believe it." 


We express our heartfelt gratitude to our financial partners. Your support not only enables us to assist adults who have faced addiction or incarceration but also empowers us to proactively reach at-risk youth before they face these challenges.

"Nestled within the captivating historic landscape of Hamilton, Ohio, you'll find The Fringe Coffee House at 604 High Street. Our mission is to empower individuals impacted by incarceration, returning citizens, and those at the fringes of society to embrace whole and healthy lives. 

Through our 10-week prison art/music therapy program, we delve into the root causes of incarceration and destructive behavior, fostering kinship and mentorship among the incarcerated. Upon their release, we offer not only gainful employment but also a comprehensive re-entry support plan, all under a single roof."
