Mission Statement

Keeping Families Connected by providing transportation for prison visitation while promoting family wellness through education, supportive resources, and spiritual enhancement

Description

UWYGPM benefits thses families by providing both the means to maintain family connections during incarceration of the family/friends member and the emotional and spiritual support necessary to nourish the fragile family/friend and help them move from hopelessness to optimism.

The children and families of the incarcerated are"hidden victims" of crime because emotional and practical challenges often make the family members feel that they, too, are in a prison.

We have retreats for the women,and toysand clothes giveaway for children at Christmas.

Would you recommend Use What You've Got Prison Ministry Keeping Families Connected, Inc.?

by Re'Nita O. (February 26, 2009)
What an awesome service this ministry provides! The prison shuttle service helps to maintain relationships for those who have loved ones incarcerated. Despite the circumstances, people in prison need the support of their families to help aid in their rehabilitation as most will be released one day. Without the service of this organization, family ties would be lost for many. The additional services provided also directly help the famiy members, children in particular. All that this organization does helps to alleviate the burden of having a loved one in prison.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
