PROCLAIMING CHRIST, ADVOCATING FOR SECOND CHANCES
Founded in 2016, Hope For Life Ministries seeks to "Proclaim Christ and advocate for Second Chances."
Our goal is to successfully help individuals impacted by incarceration find their Second Chance in society and see their lives changed, chains broken, hearts healed, and families restored.
We do this through the following initiatives.
Second Chance Reentry Sponsorship is essentially a three month grant to individuals coming back to society from prison. It is in partnership with a local Reentry Center and provides a person the opportunity for a successful Second Chance.
A Second Chance Party is an event where people come together in support of a person’s return to society. It’s a place where negative messages and stereotypes are replaced with dignity and value for the “guest of honor.” It’s a gathering of loved people focusing their love onto someone else who may not believe that they are loved and wanted.
Second Chance Family Impact is an effort to sponsor and mentor children and families of incarcerated men and women. Statics show that these children are more likely to spend time behind bars then children without incarcerated parents. Our goal is to change these statics and make an positive impact on these families and give them a Second Chance.
Each year in collaboration with other area organizations we host a Second Chance Hiring/Resource Fair to provide an opportunity for formerly incarcerated individuals to be hired.
Throughout the year we host community events that highlights the stories of men and women who have been given a Second Chance. This is a time for them to share their stories of redemption to the world as well as worship the God who changes us. This is also a time of prayer for all those impacted by incarceration.
