How We Help

Biblical Correspondence

Through God’s grace and mercy prisoner's lives can be changed for the better. To this end The Salvation Army through regular visits to institutions and correspondence courses provides opportunities for the renewing of the mind through God’s Word, the leading of the Holy Spirit as well as pastoral and mentoring relationships. Men, women, and youth who are incarcerated are shown what it means to follow Jesus, experience all that God has for them, and live good and honorable lives.

Family Support

The Salvation Army ministers to the families of the incarcerated by providing spiritual guidance, supportive counselling, and material assistance. This is accomplished by helping families to know and utilize community resources and by providing character building programs for children along with other practical services. Families are encouraged to attend and participate in regular worship services and Christian education programs.

Re-Entry Support

Re-entry into society when prison terms conclude continues to be one of the greatest challenges for the incarcerated. Without the appropriate resources, it is increasingly likely that those recently released will end up returning to prison. In response to this, The Salvation Army offers residential services such as Harbor Light Centers and Adult Rehabilitation Centers. In many communities, practical assistance such as clothing for job interviews, transportation assistance, and food vouchers are offered to aid in the transition process. Releasees are encouraged to become actively engaged in a faith community such as a local church or a Center for Worship and Service of The Salvation Army.
