To raise the funds and build an 8,250 square foot multi-purpose worship center for chaplaincy programs. The facility will provide ample space for faith-based classes, worship services and daily activities for the women incarcerated. We will provide all of the funds, materials and labor to complete and furnish the building.



To give women  the opportunity to grow in faith, find internal peace and transform their lives.  It is our hope that each woman who arrives for a 6-8 month drug and alcohol rehabilitation sentence will participate in chaplaincy programs without limitation of space or class availability. We know that faith-based instruction plays a pivotal role in dramatically reducing the recidivism rate in Texas prisons.
