Break Away Christmas Meal & Party
EVERY CHILD HAS A STORY
That story may be filled with the abandonment, loneliness and shame that come from having a mom or dad in prison. For many, it may also include following their parents down the same destructive road to incarceration. Our Breakaway Christmas meal in collaboration with Prison Fellowship, reaches out to the children of prisoners and their families in love and acceptance. This unique program gives us an opportunity to share and connect by helping to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the families of prisoners.
The stats may say that children of prisoners are seven times more likely to offend, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Touching the lives of these children by walking a journey with them and their parents will make a difference. It is a highly relational ministry that reaches out to those in society who have often withdrawn because they feel judged and put down.
“They are paying for crimes they didn’t commit.”
Our future plan is to establish and train a team of carers to support these families during their time of separation from their loved ones.
This event was initiated in 2013 and takes place every year since then. This year it is again scheduled for 22nd December. Our purpose with this event is to bring joy and hope to a prisoner’s child.
