Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Many people today, both men and women, have gotten caught in a cycle of addiction, poverty, and crime. Putting them in jail is what we do, but it is a huge part of the cycle, because after the folks get out of jail, it's harder to find a job, they have usually lost everything, and they've also lost social connections and hope. Often they return to the cycle they know, because it's easier than finding a new way.

Where we work

Charting impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our organization's goal is to bring new hope and direction to those who are incarcerated, through experiencing the love of God through Jesus Christ and through the teams we take in to the jails to teach the residents a new, better way.

We tell them how we have found new life. We invite them to receive the love and hope that comes through Jesus Christ, and we offer them friendship and resources to help them when they come out of jail or prison.

We are a completely volunteer led organization. Our capabilities are in our people who want to do good and offer hope to those we minister to. We want to change the atmosphere and the violence that happens in our jails and prisons.

We will see residents out in the community being productive and joining forces with us to bring hope and help to others. We will see less recidivism and a kinder, gentler culture in the jails and prisons we serve. Jail commanders will invite us to come and minister to their populations because they see a change in their population.

We've hosted two REC weekends and have seven more scheduled. We're growing this outreach to jails that are not currently being served by an REC. We're hearing about changed lives and folks are connecting with our ministry after they leave jail. We hope to expand into Marion County, Morgan County, and Hancock county next.
