JUST FOR TODAY DEVOTIONAL

 

WE HAVE A MINISTRY CENTER!!

We would like to share some Happy News!  Keys to Freedom Ministries is happy to announce that coming this March we will be opening our new Ministry Center!  This comes as God has provided an open door to broaden our services to those in our community impacted by incarceration.
 
WHERE?
Through our partnership with Faith Reformed Church we will be utilizing the building adjacent to the Intersection.  This truly is a generous and gracious offering on behalf of a church that has a servant’s heart for this community!  
 
Men and women will have a landing pad to seek and utilize resources to better equip them on their journey of integrating back into our community. What kind of resources will they have access to?
 
*Computers to search for jobs, complete applications, obtain Identifications and connect with other needed community resources.
*A place to meet with Resources in our area such as MI Works, Mentors/Coaches, Spiritual Guidance with Chaplains and/or Pastors.
*A place for families of the incarcerated to seek help and support!
*A central location easy to get to!
*Clothes
*Hygiene Products
*Visits with  our Chaplains that also continue to minister in the jails.
*Classes to assist with learning how to navigate through the journey of post incarceration.
 
*This Ministry Center will serve as a Hub for the Ministry as we serve the community and for administrative purposes as  Ministry continues to grow!
 
We hope you will keep this ministry in your prayers as we set up shop and prepare for what God has in store for all of us!
 
On that note…it is getting close to that time of year where many of us get ready for Spring Cleaning!  We are in desperate need of some winter clothes… for men especially, jackets and boots of all sizes.  We are also in need of Hygiene Items for those just being released as some prepare for life on the streets!  
 
Keys to Freedom Ministries cannot serve as we do without your partnership!  What we do cannot be done unilaterally.  We are so very fortunate to have Churches and other organizations partnering with us to enable us to be a much needed resource in this community.
 
In love and gratitude!!
All of us at Keys to Freedom Ministries look forward to partnering with you! Please forward this email to those you believe have a heart for Keys to Freedom Ministries and the impact we want to have on this community!
 
Thank you!
Chaplain Tina McCalley-President

MICHIGAN PRISONER REHABILITATION CREDIT ACT

At MPRCA, rehabilitative development is at the forefront of what we’re working together towards making available in every facility across the state of Michigan. Our programs and events are designed to be a catalyst that helps community members on both sides of the wall reach their goals and fulfill their potential. Learn more about the positive impact we have had in our state, organizing people in order to make our prisons safer by incentivizing good behavior and join us in bringing about this positive change. 

 

The MPRCA is an opportunity for Michigan voters to support the idea of bringing the Michigan prison system in-line with the federal prison system and the vast majority of the other states in this country. Michigan is one of only a few states left in the United States that has no earned credit system available for people who are sentenced to spend time in prison. That is why we are introducing the Michigan Prisoner Rehabilitation Credit Act. This piece of legislation will allow prisoners to work on their own rehabilitation at their own pace, while also earning credits toward an early release if they choose. With the passing of this legislation prisoners will be incentivized to steer clear of violence, participate in rehabilitative programming, achieve higher education goals, enroll in training/vocation programs and work to develop their skills in preparation for their release. All of these activities are different ways that prisoners can be active leaders in their rehabilitative process. We believe that those who have truly been rehabilitated will recognize the opportunity before them, and will work hard toward not just an early release, but toward a higher education, and becoming better people for themselves, their family and community.

 

We believe that every person has the right to demonstrate their rehabilitative development regardless of the date on which they were sentenced or the date on which they are to be released. We believe that every prisoner has the capacity for change and that every person has the right to redemption that should be recognized in the essence of their humanity, MPRCA embraces that belief.

“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me.”

Our goal

Keys to Freedom Ministries seeks to restore dignity to those affected by Crime and incarceration. Ministering inside the jails, our trained Chaplains and Program Providers introduce prisoners to hope available through Jesus Christ.

Working on the outside with Churches, para-church organizations and community ministries, our goal is to support those behind bars and their families looking for restoration and a path to wholeness.

Our prayer is that ex-offenders can return to their families with restored relationships…to their community with a job….to their church with a desire to serve!

Our Vision

We want to seek out and cultivate strong relationships with our Church communities and educate them about the spiritual needs of the incarcerated men and women in the local jails. Our objective is to extend the ministry to more jails in our area.

I honestly cannot think of anything more effective in jail ministry than the local church body coming along side of the incarcerated.

Our Hope

We anticipate, by having personal contact with inmates, the staff will have less violence and decreasing complaints. Having open communications with the Chaplains will hopefully alleviate frustration for those requesting help.

It is the duty of the Chaplains to work with the Sheriffs office and staff to effectively communicate to our volunteers the rules and protocol in the jail. Volunteers will have a clear chain of communication with one authority responsible for any questions or concerns they may have.
