Help HOPE HOUSE provide a safe and spiritually conducive environment for prisoners re-entering society to get a fresh start in rebuilding their lives.
Studies show that one of the most vulnerable periods of a prisoner’s life is immediately after release and during the parole period. A positive housing environment is often the most critical component to preventing recidivism and encouraging and navigating a successful transition from incarceration to productive citizenship.
The Washington Conference Adventist Prison Ministries (APM) operates an active teaching and preaching program within most prisons in Western Washington and is thereby in an ideal position to screen potential Hope House candidates and continue their spiritual development after release. Developing transitional housing centers is a logical and needed extension of the church’s ministry to inmates – many of which have become Seventh-day Adventists during their time in prison or have some historical connection with the church.
