Jail Ministry Program:
Together with the Sheriff, Social Services and other agencies, we work to stop the revolving door of the jail. The men and women at the Tompkins County jail need someone to care, counsel, pray and encourage them as they re-establish their lives after release. Other people also need help in our community who have never been to jail.
Almost from the beginning of the Faith Partnership, men and women volunteers have visited the county jail to share their Christian faith and build relationships. Our goal is to promote Christian faith as the cornerstone of successful re-entry into the community, recovery from addictions, and the ability to lead meaningful and productive lives. In cooperation with the Sheriff, Social Services, the Red Cross and other agencies, we work to stop the revolving door of incarceration.
Our women's visiting team recently responded to requests from the women and began offering a weekly Sunday worship group.
