Mission Statement

As a non-denominational Christian ministry our mission is to sustain, instruct and encourage people who want to make a change in themselves. Our goal is to empower prisoners to empower one another to walk in righteousness while they are in prison and when they get out of prison. Empowering prisoners to empower one another through discipling and holding one another accountable creates opportunities to think differently and make better choices.

Description

We have members in all California prisons and several county jails. We disciple through personal letters from mentors and with a monthly newsletter written by inmates. We continue the mentoring when they are released from prison here in the local area and occasionally in other counties where mentors are available

We hope to provide the monthly inmate written newsletter, D. O. C. Deliverer, to all members rather than the limited number receiving it at present.

March 2015 goal to provide a 24-72 hour crisis help zone (Haven House) to those we have been discipling and mentoring inside prison walls as they transition into freedom and outside institutional programs. We partner with local programs which include D. O. C. member's ministries, local churches, parole and probation, transitional living programs, in patient treatment and live-in programs, both spiritual and secular.

We will provide a Dress-Out program (parole clothing) so gate money ($200 before bus fare home) can be retained.
Computer stations will be made available for job search, resume building, computer training and volunteer work.
We will expand the hygiene ministry to provide basic necessities to indigent inmates inside the walls.
Classes will be provided to facilitate learning to live a healthy and productive life style in the community.
