Prison
To provide ministries that will support the prison facilities in our community.

Why Should You Care?
The transitions from a life of confinement and institutionalization to freedom comes with a great deal of new responsibilities and a maze of conflicting emotions. For the average everyday citizen surviving and thriving in the outside world is a day to day challenge. It is no wonder that those leaving a period of incarceration will find it very difficult, on their own, to obtain the things that we take for granted - food, clothing, housing, job assistance, family integration and emotional support. Reentry into society can be very difficult for these men and women.
