Inside the Jail

Chapel Services and Religious Services are coordinated by the Chaplains Office.

We offer Protestant Church Services on Tuesday evenings for men and women beginning at 6:30 pm.  We offer Catholic Services on Sunday Evenings at 7pm.  For those that are unable to attend services we offer a streamed service.  We also offer and coordinate Faith Based program classes such as:

S.A.L.T.  Seven Areas of Life Training




Our Annual Christmas party is held in the jail for the residents.  

We offer services on the Holidays as availability of volunteers and staff allows.

Baptisms, when requested, are allowed.  

Guidance & Encouragement

Our Chaplains offer one on one private visits in the jail during the week and Pastor Visits on Sunday evenings.  These visits are to be a listening ear and to guide and encourage the incarcerated in their faith walk. We also offer Grief Counseling on a one-on-one basis as well as Grief Seminars through the year.

Discharge Planning Process

Discharge planning; This offers those exiting the jail an opportunity to create an exit plan to help them be successful with their post incarceration journey.  KTF offers all of our resources and partnerships though this program.

Keys to Freedom Ministries realizes the many personal challenges and roadblocks that men and women face when they have exited the justice system.  Homelessness, unemployment, transportation and family struggles are just a few of these.  We partner with organizations in the area to help in these areas. Our Recovery homes for those wanting to stay clean are safe, structured and filled with hope. Our boarding home partnership enables those needing time to put their lives back in order while balancing parole/probation requirements.
