As we grapple with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its implications, we hope that you and your family members are remaining healthy: those in the community and those that are incarcerated. Your and their well-being continue to be a top priority for us. We were informed that the local jail has cancelled all programs until further notice in the interest of protecting the staff and inmates. Our ministry team continues to keep our facilities, inmates, family members, and staff in prayer during this time.
We will continue to monitor COVID-19 and take all the necessary and precautionary measures. As of now we are continuing to do business as usual with the addition of the steps as recommended by the CDC.

2nd Annual Preventing Generations of Incarceration Conference.
We have received noticed from The University of Mary Washington that all events scheduled through April 6 have been cancelled out of an abundance of caution. As a result, we will have to postpone our conference with a reschedule date ”to be determined”. For all of you who have purchased a ticket, we will be issuing refunds. Please expect to see that in the next 7-10 days. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out. We thank you in advance for your patience as we move forward.
"They provide a much needed service to the returning citizens in our community. This service helps to prevent recidivism in the criminal justice system."
