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

Early Childhood

Prevent Children From Falling Into a Life of Crime

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

In Prison

Transform the Lives of Prisoners

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
