America is the land of the second chance...

Free to leave- now what?
“We know from long experience that if [former prisoners] can’t find work, or a home, or help, they are much more likely to commit more crimes and return to prison. … America is the land of the second chance, and when the gates of the prison open, the path ahead should lead to a better life.” – President George W. Bush

 A better life?

A better life is impossible without a better heart, and a new way of thinking. That's the mission of Hope Aglow- sharing the way to a better life. We consistently share the message of the gospel with incarcerated men and women, and they are hungry for it. We provide Bible studies, devotional materials and Bibles to all who ask.

We are a Sunday church service, a letter from a friend,  and a visitor who genuinely cares. Would you support our work? It doesn't take much for us to do the work we do now, but we have dreams of building bridges for inmates to start this better life through learning job skills, getting involved in a church, and staying plugged into a recovery program.

We have a small start on this ministry of outreach to newly released men and women, but we want to grow! Please pray for us. Prayer makes all the resources of God available to us.
