Second chances through
TEST2sc. Stronger men. 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
We feed the inner person with generous servings of hope and knowledge.
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.
