For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!
Fighting Crime with Faith
It’s a hard fact of life that most crime is committed by repeat offenders. In Florida, 33 percent of the men and women released from prison return within three years of their release.
In Jacksonville that cycle of crime is changing, thanks to Prisoners of Christ Ministries. Its program of re-entry services has a proven track record of success, with 89 percent of those successfully completing 1 year with POC staying crime-free. The proof is in the hundreds of men POC has helped to turn away from a life of crime, in the thousands of people whose lives have been touched by what they do: the families of the ex-prisoners, the victims spared, the taxpayers’ money saved and used instead on programs that benefit so many others. POC has saved taxpayers more than $50 million since 1990 in the costs of housing, clothing food, lost wages and welfare payments to the inmate's family.
