Default Faith-Based Program Helps Keep Inmates From Cycle Of Incarceration

Faith-Based Program Helps Keep Inmates From Cycle Of Incarceration

"MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A faith-based prison program is celebrating 15 years of helping inmates decrease the risk of re-offending.

Prison Fellowship Academy at Lino Lakes uses support from community mentors to help inmates realize they are not defined by the crime that put them to prison.

WCCO was allowed inside to see how the fellowship is not only changing lives, but saving the state of Minnesota money."

"Waiting is negative; hoping is positive. so try to wait with hope. This will help you remember that you're on your way to something worth waiting for."
