From Prison To Community - Where Punishment Ends and Healing Begins!
Everyone Has Value!
Mission of Blameless
To break the cycle of crime while restoring broken lives through God's Great Love infused with restorative justice practices and trauma-informed care.
In order to decrease criminal recidivism, treatment intervention must focus on the effects of early life experiences.
Hurt people Hurt others, but Healed people Heal!
Values of Blameless
Blameless and Forever Free Ministries operates believing that real change will occur in our criminal justice system through the lives of beloveds who have been affected by trauma and violence; thereby, reducing recidivism rates, creating safer communities and healed lives, and disrupting the cycle of reoffending.
Through a network of committed and collaborating partners, we will transform and align those affected by incarceration by building a resilient and trauma-informed system that promotes opportunities for healing and improves the health and safety outcomes for all those affected by crime.
The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world. - Marianne Williamson
Principles of Blameless
Since Blameless and Forever Free Ministries understands that many of our beloved incarcerated have suffered great trauma and violence themselves, we operate as Advocates and Ambassadors of Hope for restorative justice.
Restorative justice is responding to crime and violence in a way that transforms the focus through A.R.T.: Shifting punishment to responsibility (Accountability), leaning into rehabilitation and restoration (Reintegration), leading to redemption (Transformation).
We believe all of mankind is created in God's image; therefore, we are God's masterpiece, His Works of ART!
We have confidence that this A.R.T. approach not only holds the offender accountable, but it becomes the vessel, the very stepping stones, that pave the way towards a path of healing for all beloveds impacted by crime: our victims, the offenders, their families and our communities. Plus, we can't forget those working in the criminal justice system.
This illustrates, really, God's heart of justice: Valuing all human life while promoting accountability. This cultivates community engagement. Together, it changes the culture, inspires the church, and advances justice reform.
Vision of Blameless
Our vision is bringing unity and healing into our communities by following each stepping stone laid out by our Beautiful Jesus leading towards the A.R.T. that He calls mankind to be and that healing creates. Building on being stronger together, we become a resilient and compassionate community.
When we embrace culture by investing in people and not in prisons, it allows the rippling effects of God's Great Love to spread through hope, forgiveness and power leading to redemption as we lean in and work together towards freedom from violence and trauma.
"What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived," are the things God has prepared for those who love Him.
