Hand Up Ministries is a Faith based prison after-care program for men and women that have just been released from prison. We offer a “Hand Up” NOT a “Hand Out”. We provide housing complete with utilities, transportation, meals, clothing, hygiene products and, most importantly, a structured environment to help these men and women re-adjust to society.
We offer 24/7 addiction recovery & support with weekly group meetings and weekly individual counseling as needed. We have classes twice each week to strengthen character development, life skills and others as needed by the individual. Residents are encouraged to attend the church of their choice.
We help residents find permanent employment or if they are unable to work, we help to get Social Security and/or Veterans Benefits started. Our goal is to assist them in being able to support themselves so that they do not remain homeless.
We charge a nominal program fee after permanent employment or other support has been established.
Hand Up Ministries was founded in July of 1996 by a man with a vision inspired by God. Ten years later, this ministry has grown to accommodate over 100 men and women and we are looking forward to more growth as we are able to acquire more property.
