2022  A Time of Growth and Renewal

You are loved.

You have great worth.

You are not alone.

You are not forgotten.

Last year, we produced what many inmates and families have called the "most impactful tour in our history."   With depression and suicides running at all-time highs,  we sang, we shared, and we met the weary and ashamed right where they were.  For many, it was their first glimmer of hope behind bars.   In sum, we reached over 2,000 inmates in 10 prisons, in person, with our life-affirming message of:

This year, our focus is to grow our sponsors and partnerships so we can improve our serve.   Our goal is to create connection, encourage empathy, increase acceptance, and improve every inmate's sense of possibility for their lives, not just in the southeast, but nationwide, strengthening families and reducing recidivism.  

 

Please join us in this vision!

On screen was Timothy Kane, a 14 year-old boy who had just been tried as an adult and given a life sentence, despite the courts agreeing the boy had never touched a victim...

Listening of this kind is one of the most potent forces for change I know.
