Volunteers are passionate about serving individuals in and out of prison to help those affected by incarceration to navigate reentry into community.
Creativity From Our Volunteers
Prison Fellowship collaborates with churches, para-church organizations, and local service providers to support families with loved ones behind bars and people affected by crime including prisoners and their families, victims, and wardens.
Why We Love This Affiliate
We love Prison Fellowship because their programs work to bring restoration to not only the prisoner but their families and those who are victims of crimes as well.
I've seen lives changed, as well as mine. I've learned more from the guys, I think, than they've learned from me. It's all about serving Jesus.
Every year, HFNY hosts HFNY Sunday events and participates in Volunteer Fairs at our church partners. We asked our Church Partnerships team what encouraged them at the HFNY Sunday and Volunteer Fair events.
For an annual Hope for New York Sunday event, a special prayer was shared at Redeemer Lincoln Square: "Father, remind our hearts that there are no ordinary people, that there are no mere mortals, but that every person is an image bearer of the most high, deserving of honor."
