Prison Ministry

We partner with other area Christian ministries in providing:
  1. Weekly Bible study with male Deaf inmates at the Maryland Correctional Institute - Jessup (MCI-J).

  2. Educational tutoring at MCI-J, helping some to improve their competence in English literacy, and others who are hard of hearing and late-deafened to learn Sign.

  3. Correspondence ("pen pal") with Deaf inmates in State and Federal facilities.

  4. After-Care mentoring for newly released inmates.

  5. Community awareness and advocacy in the criminal justice system, addressing the unique and often neglected needs of incarcerated Deaf people.
