Incarceration affects millions of Americans. Whether you have a family member inside, or you are contributing your tax dollars to care for offenders, it has touched your life in many ways. Approximately 2.3 million people are behind bars. 92% of those offenders will be released, and 2 out of 3 of them will return to prison. It is time to take a stand and rehabilitate offenders before they are released.
The key to stopping the trend of incarceration and recidivism is incorporating faith-based programs inside the walls of prisons. If we can partner together to disciple an offender before he or she is released, the recidivism rate will drop dramatically. Today, approximately 33% of Americans know someone personally, or have a family member who is incarcerated. The need is higher than ever before to assist these offenders in becoming productive citizens. Are you willing to help?
