We are a group of dedicated volunteers who bring light and hope into the darkness of many Upstate New York correctional facilities through our spiritual retreats and focused ecumenical programs.
We treat incarcerated individuals with respect and as human beings who matter. When we first meet them, most inmates do not believe they matter. Lives marked by abuse, abandonment, neglect and shame have taught them that. Through our programs we hope to show men, women and adolescents they are magnificently made, worthy and capable of change. We understand all who live and/or work inside jails and prisons face tremendous ongoing challenges and we strive to live by example the Gospel messages of love, hope, healing, and reconciliation to all we meet in the process of our volunteer experience.
