Second chances through
Stronger men and women. Stronger families. Stronger faith. Our research-backed Christian education program gives inmates and released inmates skills and grounding to thrive in the community
Hope for inmates, results for administrators
We partner with prison administrators, churches, educators, and the business community to promote the reintegration of the formerly incarcerated into the community through the teaching of critical soft skills. With a focus on strengthening relationships, improved parenting and leadership skills, and the enhancement of opportunities for employment, the key principle of our program is a constant focus on personal improvement.
It has been proven that recidivism rates are greatly reduced when the incarcerated participate in proven, successful education programs and are provided continuing support beyond the prison experience. Businesses, faith leaders, and social workers stand ready to aid their transition to community life.
Life Skills Prison Ministry:
- Helps administrators better manage their inmates
- Reduces recidivism
- Lowers the cost of incarceration
New! Classes for the community
Starting this fall, we’re taking our years of experience of teaching outside the prison walls, affording a chance for released people, families, and support networks to learn the skills and tools that have helped scores of men chart a new path in life.
With a focus on critical life skills and maintaining personal relationships through strong self-image, positive attitudes, and character building, the program teaches the fundamentals for success in all parts of life.
The course debuts in the fall of 2021 in Raleigh, NC, and will be expanding across the United States in 2022.
If you're in Raleigh, join us for our in-person, open-to-the-public classes.
We rely on the community's generosity
Your donations of money, materials, supplies, and other types of services are critical to maintain a strong presence in the prison and business community. They support our Life Skills education program that requires great instructors, mentors and other critical business functions. Donations are the lifeblood of our work, and we are grateful for any gift, no matter the amount.
Just as valuable are contributions of time and involvement. We welcome volunteers to assist with teaching and administration. And we are always looking for businesses and community partners who seek to hire graduates of our program and assist with our students’ reintegration into the community.
Treasure. Time. Talent. Ministry takes a whole community.
