Our Story

What We Do.

Continue the Story is all about coming alongside families that are impacted by the prison system. Over 2.7 million children in the United States have a parent that is in prison. The lives of those children are instantly and drastically changed. Research suggests that intervening in the lives of parents in prison and their children help to preserve and strengthen positive family connections. As a result, it can lower the chances of reoffending for the prisoner and it can lower the chances of lasting psychological and emotional trauma for their children.

Why We Do It.

What if we helped the families impacted by incarceration? We could truly make a difference in the world and begin to rewrite our perceptions of those in prison. We are called to love everyone. That includes those who are not “perfect.” We have the ability to give people in prison a chance to rewrite their stories and give them hope for the future. What if we helped those in prison to not only be rehabilitated but also to find redemption. Let’s give them the tools to continue their story.

“I’m going to make a difference in the lives of others once I’m free. I’m going to use my experience inside of here as a platform to change the minds of the youth. I also want to give back, and create a 2nd chance program for the people who are locked up. I’m hoping to be free this year on my judicial release.”

Sam, an inmate

"I can tell you one thing, I'm not going to let any other opportunities pass me by because of fear, life is too short, after surviving prison, nothing else seems so scary anymore. I'm getting less and less afraid to die, I used to be terrified, but the more I learn about God's Word, the more I am starting to believe I am meant to live forever in heaven."

Nancy, an inmate

"I just want you to know how much I appreciated your letter, and your prayers. I need a lot of them. I'm trying to find my way and have struggled with my faith, I won't lie, but I'm working on myself and reconnecting with my higher power. So this letter couldn't have come at any better timing. Thank you for taking your time and thinking of someone who is doing time. You don't understand how just a little letter can not only put a smile on someones face but can change their attitude or [out]look on their life. This was just another sign from God for me."

Amy, an inmate
