Mission Statement


The mission of Bridges To Life is to connect communities to the prisons in an effort to reduce the recidivism rate, particularly that resulting from violent crimes. Our Spiritual Mission is to minister to prisoners and victims in an effort to show them the transforming power of GodÂ’s love and forgiveness.

Description


Based on the principals of Restorative Justice, the BTL program takes crime victims into the prison system with the intent of reducing crime in the community and reducing the recidivism of the offenders who complete the program. BTL accomplishes its goal of empowering victims and rehabilitating inmates by educating offenders about the impact that their actions have had, not only on their families, but also on the families of the victims, their friends, and the community at large.

Organizational Statement of Faith


Our Spiritual Mission is to minister to prisoners and victims in an effort to show them the transforming power of God’s love and forgiveness. Bridges To Life is a non-denominational, faith-based organization. While our program is based on Christian principals, we do not conduct Bible study nor do we overtly attempt to proselytize within or outside of the prison. Individuals of all (or no) faith are welcome to participate in the BTL program.
