Create a welcoming atmosphere of healing for families of the incarcerated.
When a person goes to prison, the whole family system suffers. It is normal for the family to cycle through a range of emotions and symptoms that include anxiety, depression, guilt, feeling lost or abandoned, anger or irritability, difficulty concentrating, poor attention span, and more.
Children cannot understand why their parent is no longer there for them, no matter how frequent or honest the explanation.
- Prison Fellowships
Having a comfortable, free place to stay during a visit with a loved one in prison is important. We intend to provide a room to reserve for up to two nights at a time with dinner offered to our guests.
The trauma of experiencing separation from someone you love is hard to deal with and can be alienating. We seek to foster an environment which allows for open conversation with families that are experiencing the same heart-rending situation.
We will offer group Bible studies and spiritual discussions to those who desire to learn more about God and lean on Him while visiting those residing at the area prisons.
