Description

The purpose of Day-Break Ministries is to use the teachings of the Bible to nurture and support released female inmates, as they transition back into the community as productive citizens. We are committed to educating the body of Christ of the needs of women affected by crime and incarceration, by facilitating a "service network" with churches, civic groups, women's organizations and businesses in the private and public sector. Our desire is to see the women come into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, as He bridges the gap of hopelessness, despair, and failure. For many women, while cutting their ties with criminal behavior they will need to learn to survive independently, developing self-esteem and motivation often for the first time in their lives. Day-Break Ministries will encourage women to make the choice of "life" by ministering with mercy and compassion as positive role models. Most recent studies indicate that women arrested are: addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, predominately poor (with little education), either unemployed or receiving public assistance prior to their arrests, one-third of them rely on prostitution for income and many are homeless.
