WHAT HAPPENS WHEN JESUS GOES TO PRISON?
Freedom in the Son volunteers know the answer.
In a culture where women are being jailed at a much faster rate than ever before.
F.I.T.S. "She Fits" is an outreach where women mentor women residents and their children. We also serve women making the difficult transtition from prison back to their communities.
F.I.T.S. is a non-profit, tax exempt corporation serving internationally and at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility in Wilsonville, Oregon.
"I was in prison and you came to me." --Matthew 25:36
Women in Prison
- Weekly Bible Studies in 3 different locations of Coffee Creek Correctional Facility every Wednesday night.
- Mentoring involves volunteers who commit to guide a woman who is soon to be released in 6 months and then assist her while she is in transition for another year outside. The success rate is 90% of women who never return to prison when mentored.
- Pastorial Counseling every week to different women who benefit by the one to one counseling at CCCF.
Women's Retreat at Happy Camp
Hideaway in Netarts yearly.
This is for women released
who are more than conquerors
thru Christ and FITS volunteers.
