THE 3 R'S
Restitution in Florida
The Florida Department of Corrections operates the third largest state prison system and one of the lowest paid in the United States. It is the largest agency administered by the State of Florida, with a budget of $2.4 billion, over 95,000 Prisoners incarcerated and another 115,000+ offenders on some type of community supervision.
The Florida Department of Corrections has 143 facilities statewide, including 43 major institutions, 33 work camps, 15 Annexes, 20 work release centers and 6 road prisons/forestry camps.
95% of prisoners will be released from prison of which 67% will reenter the Prison system. A national survey has shown between the years of 2012-2017 that ex prisoners who where able to maintain meaningful contact with society & connect with sincere people were less likely to return to a life of crime, drugs & other negative behavior.
Rehabilitation thru Christ
Studies have shown that 40% of Prisoners have little to no knowledge on how to read the Bible.
We want to change that by outreaching to the prisoners, letting them know that someone cares, they are not alone and Jesus can redeem them from all their poor choices.
