Wing's (Women's Prison Ministry)

Wings helps incarcerated women discover and embrace their identity in Christ while learning essential skills necessary to meet the challenges of life. They provide a seven-module series on how to complete a job application, create a resume, interview for a job, manage money, and create an individual customized plan for success when released from incarceration. The program is very practical, but faith-based and emphasizes the importance of building a personal relationship with Jesus, finding a church home when released, and starting/continuing a discipleship journey.
