  1. Agree to meet regularly with a sponsor appointed to them per Hope For Life Ministries. 
  2. Remain motivated in completing their Reentry Plan provided to them by Hope For Life Ministries.

SECOND CHANCE PARTY

  

A Second Chance Party is an event that celebrates a second chance. Through the power of togetherness and cheese dip, the parties stir hope in hurting hearts. A time 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 Parties range from 20-50 people and last about 2 hours. First we eat and hang out. Then, we give the guest of honor gifts and spend a few minutes praying for them as a group. 


IF YOU KNOW OF SOMEONE WHO IS BEING RELEASED FROM PRISON AND COULD BENEFIT FROM A SECOND CHANCE PARTY THEN PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE APPLICATION BELOW, COMPLETE IT AND RETURN IT TO HOPE FOR LIFE MINISTRIES. 

SECOND CHANCE FAMILY IMPACT

 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 we build relationships with the families of the incarcerated through Prison Fellowships Angel Tree Program. Hope For Life Ministries hosts an Angel Tree Christmas party each year as well as several Angel Tree Community Events throughout the year.


Hope For Life Ministries also pair children and families with mentors from within the Christian Community.


IF YOUR FAMILY HAS BEEN IMPACTED BY INCARCERATION AND IS INTERESTED IN HAVING SOMEONE WALK ALONG SIDE OF YOU AND HELP  YOU DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME THEN PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE APPLICATION BELOW, COMPLETE IT AND RETURN IT TO HOPE FOR LIFE MINISTRIES.


SECOND CHANCE EVENTS

Each year these events include ADVOCACY EVENTS such as the Unlocking Second Chances Event that highlights the need for Second Chances for those who are and have been incarcerated, HIRING/RESOURCE EVENTS that provides resources and employment opportunities for those who have been incarcerated, and AWARENESS EVENTS such as the Second Chance Prayer Gathering that highlights the stories of men and women who have been given a Second Chance and a time of prayer for all those impacted by incarceration.
