Block Parole Inc. was established in 2004 after we discovered the case of three-year-old Laura Skinner. Laura was brutally raped and beaten to death by her mother's boyfriend. Her killer was paroled without notification and no one opposed his parole.

For the last 13 years we have been notifying crime victims and their families about upcoming parole hearings. We also guide and support them through the complicated parole process. To date we have helped keep over 100 violent offenders in prison.  While we do work predominantly in Ohio we now accept cases from all 50 states.

We seriously considered becoming a 501(c)3 organization when we started our work however the government restrictions that would have been imposed on us would have greatly limited our ability to help the victims and their families. In addition, filing for tax-exempt status would have prohibited us from advocating for victim's rights laws and prohibited us from exposing elected officials who are not acting in the best interests of the victims and the public. While this decision has made it difficult for us financially we feel it is more important to do the right thing. We are funded solely by donations from the public.
 
We appreciate your support and promise you that 100% of your donation will go directly to assisting victims and their families. Thank you for making a difference.
