"Dedicated to Incarcerated Youth of the twenty-first century

Our 25th year ministering to incarcerated youth!

+++++++++++++++++

CHRISTMAS FOR INCARCERATED YOUTH

 

 

 

 

 

We have secured approval from managements at SJJS and DBI to send in Christmas treats and stockings; they will be delivered to the pods; we will be unable to do any parties. Some of our ‘usual’ providers may or may not be able to participate or fully participate but we feel it very important that we provide a blessing to those incarcerated as well as the faithful staff supporting them. I’m sure there have been and still are many lonely moments for staff and residents alike.

 

So, we are looking for homemade cookies & the like. A touch of home via homemade is more important than ever this year. For one of the SJJS pods all treats MUST BE NUT FREE as one of the residents is deathly allergic to nuts , nut based products or anything produced in a facility that produces with nuts. If you are providing nut free products please so stipulate on your packaging!. ALSO, if anyone has access to travel size shampoo, conditioners and non alcoholic mouth wash we would be pleased to have them for the stockings.

 

How This Works:

 

If you wish to participate we look to pick up from you the weeks of 12/6 and 12/13. Upon receipt we repack into a variety using aluminum ‘hotel pans’ so we need the early arrival to get this done. Delivery to the facilities is going to take place on 12/22 and 12/23/2020.

 

If you are unable to participate we would be pleased to accept a monetary donation. If we run short of goodies we will need to purchase. We also supplement some of our regular bakers with dollars as they would be unable to provide for us otherwise.  Between residents and staff we provide for around 650.

 

WE HAVE HAD SOME RESPONSES; IF YOU HAVE ALREADY RESPONDED THERE IS NO NEED TO DO SO AGAIN.

  

As we begin our 25th year ministering to incarcerated youth let us make this a wonderful Christmas for those so often written off.

 

Prayerfully and with thanks,

 

Bob

Here is the latest concerning our return as advised by the centers COO:

Although the Governor extended the orders, all CCI (Child caring Institutions) are under strict protocols from Lansing.  We do not anticipate opening visitation to Guardians until mid/end summer per our DHHS directives with very strict rules.  We do not anticipate opening visitation to non guardians until at the earliest Fall/Winter, if at all this year.

IN THE MEANTIME PLEASE CONTINUE IN PRAYER! 

It has been suggested that we as a team meet in an appropriate setting to pray over all of this. We will take this under advisement. IN THE MEANTIME PLEASE CONTINUE IN PRAYER! As your church opens take it please to your congregation. Continue too to pray for residents, staff and managements not only for where we serve but all over this country AS WELL AS THE CURRENT SITUATION OF UNREST IN THE COUNTRY. May peace and justice prevail.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

We thank you for your visit to this web site. Please take the time to look around a bit. It is our prayer that you might be called to volunteer and support this mighty work. Our mission is simple: 'To bring the message of Jesus Christ to incarcerated youth of the Detroit metropolitan area.' We accomplish this by providing Chaplain Visits (Christian Counseling) , study and worship opportunities to detained youth. We also provide other worship opportunities utilizing various program techniques.

Our purpose is to serve as an Information Resource for persons ministering to young people currently under incarceration. There are many activities offered to the young people at the detention facilities we serve.

We encourage you to become a member of 'IYM'*. We further encourage you to donate to this cause. Your gift will ensure bibles, tracts and educational materials are always available to those we serve. We are an all volunteer army; no person serving in this ministry receives any form of compensation. We are a tithing ministry in accordance with God's word. If you wish to donate to 'IYM' please contact us:
