Houses of Worship


Houses of Worship with ministries that include the formerly incarcerated.

The following listing of Churches are special in that they have reputations of helping ex-felons and families of felons in their trials and tribulations of coping with prison related issues, re-entry into society, and assistance for families of the incarcerated. If your present church affiliation does not have programs that meet your special needs then consider contacting one of the following nearest to you (in no particular order):
