LEAF Ministry: An Outreach to Families of the Incarcerated

Welcome to the LEAF Ministry

We are an outreach ministry to families and friends of the incarcerated. Our ministry was born from listening. We heard the cry of inmates as they worried about their families on the outside. We heard the pleas for assistance from those on the outside as they became separated from their loved ones and struggled with loneliness, shame and confusion in learning the corrections system. Many of us on the ministry team know first hand the pain of having a loved one in prison; so there is no reason to walk alone. The LEAF Ministry (Listening, Encouraging and Assisting Families of the incarcerated) is a resource and referral ministry. Our meetings are a safe place where people gather to share their joys, their trials and their daily little victories with others on the same journey. Although we are a ministry with limited resources and unable to offer substantial financial help, we will offer those who contact us an attentive ear, genuine concern and thoughtful suggestions for dealing with an incarcerated family member. Through our website and through our meetings families will find non-judgmental fellowship, answers and resources to address their current difficulties. We look forward to meeting you!
