Mission Statement

InnerChange provides educational, values-based program services to prisoners on a voluntary basis to help prepare them for reentry to society, employment, religious and community service, and family and social relationships using values reflected in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.

Description

The InnerChange Freedom Initiative (IFI) is a holistic program that provides educational, values-based program services to prisoners on a voluntary and noncompulsory basis to help prepare them for reentry to society, employment, religious and community service, and family and social relationships. The program is based on values reflected in the life and teachings of Jesus.

IFI's unique plan of restoration and progressive programming begins 18 to 24 months before an inmate is released. The program continues for an additional 12 months of mentoring and support once the inmate has returned to the community. Inmates volunteer for the program and must meet several criteria before they are accepted.

IFI stresses personal responsibility, the value of education and work, care of persons and property and the opportunity for a new life.

Would you recommend InnerChange Freedom Initiative (IFI)?

by anita P. from houston, TX (June 26, 2008)
The staff is very friendly and are flexible with your schedule. I know that any help is greatly appreciated at Prison Fellowship. I walk out of their office feeling not just like a volunteer, but part of their team. I would definitely recommend volunteering at Prison Fellowship, and I plan to continue to volunteer with them.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
