But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

1 John 1:9

Would you hire a felon?
 Never
 Never Again!
 Yes
 Depends on their crime.


First Month Funds

One of the hardest things we have to do at Forgiven Felons is turn men down because of lack of funds. It's a reality we hate to live in but it does take money to run a ministry. Most of the men start jobs within the first month to six weeks. The monthly cost to house, clothe, feed, provide hygiene, bus pass, and internet to assist with job search is $545-$700. If we had some people or companies to provide just one month's program fees, $545, we could take more residents in and help so many more people. Above are the letters of men we have told "no" to because of lack of funds. Will you help us say "yes" to more? The first month, that's all we are asking for. Click on the donate button below to give towards this fund and designate it "First Month Fund" so we will know. If you'd like to sign up for auto billing you may do so at the top right of this page. Thank you so much for helping us more. 


GETTING RIGHT, GETTING OUT, GIVING BACK

Welcome to the Forgiven Felons Website!

Thank you for visiting our site. We are a ministry that believes by
encouraging men and women, as they come out of prison,
to get connected to a local church, supports groups, and
anything else they need to become a productive member
of society. Our goal is to reduce recidivism by teaching parolees
how to become a better, different, person than before they
went to prison. We don't help them forget their past, we 
show them how to use their past to gain a brighter future.
Helping People with a Past realize their Future.

We hold bible studies, mentor one on one in county jails, 
go into the prisons to share the gospel, and house men 
when they come out of prison. We believe by Getting
them Right, Getting them Out, and showing them how to
Give Back
, we can fight recidivism.

Mission Statement:
Helping People with a Past realize their Future!
We try to accomplish this by:

Getting Right- whether in prison or out, getting your mind and
heart right is vital to staying on the right track

Getting Out- getting out of whatever situation you're in. Prison, parole,
probation, addictions, unemployment. Sometimes this takes time
and effort but it's important to always be moving forward

Giving Back- pouring into someone else is the most surefire way
to the focus off ourselves. Most of our consequences with the law
are brought about by selfishness.

Recidivism- Atendencytolapseintoapreviouspattern

of behavior, especially a pattern of criminal habits. (dictionary.com)

67% of all inmates released from prison
will be back within three months.

The children of incarcerated parents are
five times more likely to end up in jail themselves.
64% of all men incarcerated are fathers.
78% of women incarcerated are mothers.

Let's fight recidivism!

 
Welcome Home Package
Each month new inmates get out that have nothing but the clothes TDCJ gave them. As the parole to our ministry we like to provide them with a month of hygiene, three sets of clothes and shoes, bus passes, and some food. Please help us by considering a monthly gift to help meet these needs.
