Freedom Weekend at Texas Prisons
Free Indeed Re-entry Ministry goes into local Texas prisons to establish rapport with inmates who will be soon released and returning to Northeast Houston. Freedom Weekend (FW)encounters offer spiritual healing, forgiveness and restoration to inmates in a powerful, life-changing weekend format. Leadership development, training and mentoring prepare inmates for successful re-entry and leadership in their community. The Re-entry Program guides the ex-offender throughout their transition by way of a complete needs assessment, Re-entry ActionPlan, case management and referral to housing, job assistance and support services.
