 Volunteer Programs

Volunteers serve in the following areas and programs below: Christmas Behind Bars, Substance Abuse, Gospel Echoes, general Christian services and all other religions

The Purposeful Living Units Serve (PLUS) program is a faith and character-based community within the facility. The emphasis of this voluntary initiative focuses on strengthening spiritual moral and character development as well as life-skills. Volunteers are needed to provide mentoring to offenders and facilitate the classes.

The Reformative Residential Re-Entry Program (RRRP) is a program in a housing unit that instills a set of core values into offenders who successfully complete the requirements of the program. The core values are honesty with self and with others, tolerance of the view and beliefs of others, caring for others, and personal responsibility. Volunteers are needed to provide mentoring to offenders and facilitate the classes.

The mission of Kairos Prison Ministry is to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ
to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, 
to become loving and productive citizens of their communities. You can learn more about their program and how to volunteer in their ministry at their website -
