Stay Connected to FailSafe-ERA and Support Us

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.
