Support for Friends and Family of Prisoners

SUPPORT FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY OF PRISONERS

We believe that no life is beyond the reach of God's power, and we envision a future in which countless prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families are redeemed, restored, and reconciled through the love and truth of Jesus Christ. To that end, we seek to prepare Christian inmates to become leaders of their families, communities, and churches once they are released back into the community. We also endeavor to support prisoners' families, helping them become reconciled to God and one another through the power of the Gospel and supported by transformative relationships with local churches.
