Mission Statement

Only their faith can set them free from the bondage of this world, their addictions, crime, broken spirits, and destructive relationships.

When inmates are released from prison, statistics show that 75% of them will return. This is a staggering probability, and it shows that current methods of release & re-entry need to be re-examined. This is where faith comes into play. When prisoners commit their life to God and MAINTAIN that faith for a year after release, that statistic is turned on its head --- 80% will successfully alter their lifestyle and avoid returning to prison.

We supply for the basic needs of women on parole: food, shelter, clothing, grooming items, and safety. With these provisions, the women won't have to resort to crime to meet their basic needs.
