That's approximately the number of family members who have a loved one in prison or under some kind of criminal justice supervision. That's enough people to fill AT&T Stadium (home of the Dallas Cowboys) to capacity at least 280 times.
These families experience shame, isolation, and all kinds of social issues because of the crisis of incarceration. And while many churches have a desire to help, few pastors know where to begin. (Read about how much these pastors care.)
Mercy Heart desires to equip these churches with training, resources, and curriculum so they can begin ministering to these families immediately.
On September 14, 2017 Mercy Heart is once again partnering with the North Texas Giving Day, and our goal is to raise at least $59,000. We will use these funds to bless 100 churches with a FREE year of Mercy Heart.
Your best gift on this day will establish supportive communities for these 28 million people in churches all across the country.
So please make plans to partner with us on this day and help these families find life beyond the crisis of incarceration.
Are you one of the 28 million family members caught in the crisis of incarceration?
