APRIL IS SECOND CHANCE MONTH
Every person has value along with potential and dignity. Over 70 million Americans have a criminal record. That number sadly represents that approximately 1 in 3 American adults is living with a criminal record that is limiting their access to education, jobs, housing, and other items hindering their potential.
APRIL IS SECOND CHANCE MONTH
Heart-shattered lives ready for love don’t for a moment escape God’s notice (Psalm 147:3).
Trusting in the Lord can be hard at times to walk out and believe, especially when the wounds of our hearts have been traumatized by failed expectations and generational curses.
No app can replace human contact! Humanity craves connection and relatedness. It taps into our emotional lifeline that we all need in order to survive what COVID or crime has deprived!
By now you’re probably realizing that our Lord has been in the process of healing your heart. You might not have known you needed healing until just recently. The way our Lord heals the heart is by forcing us back to the place where our wound originated from; childhood.
April is Second Chance Month for our men and women incarcerated. Every person has value along with potential and dignity.
As Vice President Kamala Harris stated, “To be smart on crime, we should not be in a position of constantly reacting to crime after it happens. We should be looking at preventing crime before it happens.”
Help Blameless and Forever Free Ministries put 2,100 rehabilitative programming books into the hands of every resident at Folsom State Prison to continue programming.
The trauma of the past notifies us of the pressing issues and challenges of today. Trauma exists in the hearts, minds and bodies of many of our incarcerated.
We get this opportunity and honor to help our residents inside Folsom State Prison as they write the next, more profound, restorative chapters of their lives.
Working together, we not only receive healing ourselves, but future generations will also reap the benefits of what we sow. And that is the goal of the ACE-Aware Initiative; reducing ACEs and trauma by 50 percent in the course of one generation.
DECRIMINALIZING HUMAN PAIN
Blameless and Forever Free Ministries believes in investing in people, not prisons. This is why we're so passionate in making Folsom State Prison an iconic symbol of healing and wholeness where all parties (staff, residents and families) transform culture through trauma-informed practices.
Starting rehabilitation on day one, not five or ten years down the road of the residents' incarceration, along with environmental changes and capitalizing on the beautiful and historical nature of the prison with the peaceful surroundings of nature with both staff and residents working together through trauma-informed care practices, bridges of healing and wholeness can begin to be built as lives are restored as we reduce ACEs and trauma by 50 percent in the course of one generation.
We can't wait to start this new pilot program that will transform culture!
