Beauty for Ashes Ministry is dedicated to reducing recidivism by helping inmates truly find freedom from what lead them to become incarcerated. We are committed to their healing while still in prison, and offer support upon release, encouraging their success afterwards.
We currently have programs in Missouri and Kansas. Our hope is to expand to several more states within the next few years. Inmates that complete our programs have a less than a 10% recidivism rate compared to the national average of 76% recidivism within five years (National institute for Justice). This statistic shows that rehabilitation doesn't happen without reformation through transformation.
All of our programming is designed to transform each member from the inside out. Scripture tells us "As a man thinks in his heart so he is". We understand in order to see our members have real and lasting change they need to learn new "thinking". Our programs last eighteen months while incarcerated, upon release, we will continue to track and support reentry members up to three years.
