People discover freedom from the destructive cycle of incarceration. Thousands are stuck in a cycle of generational incarceration. We break that cycle by ministering to prisoners and their children, so that families can find freedom to live their God-designed destiny.

Children need connection and security. Healthy development during early childhood is essential for a successful life. We achieve that by providing Christ-centered homes for children born to incarcerated women. Our program provides:

A Christ-Centered Home

Connection with the Child's Mother

Stable Relationships with Household Members

The cycle can be broken when men and women in prison find freedom in Christ. Their freedom keeps them and their families out of prison and in the life God built them for. This is done by providing:

Full-time Chaplaincy Services

Annual Seminars

Special Programs

Women leaving prison can find help in our program to have a successful transition into society. They can use this opportunity as a starting point for a new life of freedom. Each woman leaving prison through our program gets:

Reunification with Her Child

Direct Access to Caring Program Administrators

Practical Teaching on Parenting and Successful Living

Housing and Work in a Healthy Community

Emotional Security that Cannot be Taken for Granted

Mission statement

To provide Christ-centered nurture for children and families in need, share the love of Christ to incarcerated youth and adults, and provide programs and experiences for our staff members that foster spiritual and personal growth.

Program accomplishments


You can be the difference between spiritual life or death for these families caught in the cycle. Will you make a difference in the life of a child, inmate, or mother? Many family trees have already been changed for eternity by generous donors like you.

A gift to childcare will help with transportation to visits, diapers, formula, and bedding. A gift to Mom Care supports the classes, Bible studies, and our Re-Entry program. A gift to the Prison Ministry enables our 6 chaplains to be in full-time ministry and disciple the inmates as certified Department of Corrections Chaplains.
