Prison hardens some people, but others choose to turn their lives around. The problem is, they face an uphill battle.
Many face their future alone because their family has written them off. Most have only a high school diploma . . . or less. All of them will have to face stigma when they're released.
Families are torn apart as well.
Many families lose a substantial amount of income when their spouse or parent goes to jail. Add money problems to emotional pain and you have a tragic situation.
Physical, mental and spiritual support
Prisoners live in dark, forgotten places. We refuse to forget them.
It's not our job to judge them for what they've done. We just want to help them prepare for a different life when they're released. Watch this video to learn more about our work.
How we help prisoners and their families
We bring hope to prisoners by:
Leading Bible studies
Holding church services
Teaching life-skills programs
Providing 1-on-1 counseling
Helping prisoners reenter society after release
Families also need help and healing. In 2012 we'll be providing children with gifts from their incarcerated parent on Christmas and their birthday.
