Watch our interview with DOC Warden Romero
Recently we had the honor of conducting an interview with Department of Corrections Warden Michael Romero. He explains the cycle of incarceration and what he has been doing to help break it.
Through early childhood care and discipleship of inmates the cycle can be broken
Children need connection and security. Healthy development during early childhood is essential for a successful life. We achieve that by providing Christ-centered homes for children born to incarcerated women. Our program provides:
- A Christ-Centered Home
- Connection with the Child’s Mother
- Stable Relationships with Household Members
- Emotional Security that Cannot be Taken for Granted
The cycle can be broken when men and women in prison find freedom in Christ. Their freedom keeps them and their families out of prison and in the life God built them for. This is done by providing:
- Full-time Chaplaincy Services
- Annual Seminars
- Special Programs
Women leaving prison can find help in our program to have a successful transition into society. They can use this opportunity as a starting point for a new life of freedom. Each woman leaving prison through our program gets:
- Support for a Successful Reunification with Her Child
- Direct Access to Caring Program Administrators
- Practical Teaching on Parenting and Successful Living
- Housing and Work in a Healthy Community
