forgotten Children...

When ‘Lenore’ was sentenced to prison for 210 months, her 3 children were sent to their dad. For three years, the 16-year-old daughter and her 2 younger brothers slept in the living room of their dad’s home because they have no bedroom of their own. Life is hard, a struggle inside and outside.

‘Adopt a Champion’ comes along side these moms with support, encouragement, and helps keep them connected with their forgotten children.

Adopt a Champion is there to make a difference, to share practical needs and the gospel:

  • Cards for the inmates’ children

  • Backpacks for school

  • Christmas gifts

  • Emotional support for the children

  • Funds for a fun and meaningful outing or trip.

 

‘Monica’ completed her life plan and received $100 from our Affiliate Ministry, Majestic Grace, Inc. She was able to step into creatively supporting herself in prison. 

Our “Mentors”  work with the ‘Adopt a Champion’s’ to help them identify who they’re created to be.  And  Equip them so they can activate their faith.  Through the program they’ll create a mission and vision statement and develop their life plan. With the help of the coaches and the affiliates  they’ll  learn creative ways to support themselves with personal needs while in prison and live a life of meaning once released.

‘Mindy’ was sentenced to 22 years. It had been tough; and when there was concern that she was exposed to COVID-19 they put her in lockdown for 36 days.

The loneliness and struggles were agonizing. She had no visits, since her family lives in California and she is in Texas. While locked up her husband had an affair. We are here to stand in the GAP!
