Vision is to break the cycle of crime by transforming individuals to be better citizens. To see hope and value given to the needy in our communities (Job 5:16). A transformed community and society is when the individuals are not surviving but serving one another. When they are not only receiving but giving.
Mission is to rehabilitate, reintegrate, empower and release as transforming agents. This involves providing truth from the word of God that will deal with the various aspects of poverty which include poverty of the mind (identity), poverty of relationship (inequality), and poverty of purpose (unemployment).
The needy we shall be focusing on are those incarcerated in the Correctional centres and their families and the communities linked to them. Our goal is to deal with the issue of crime by bringing hope to the needy (inmates, ex-offenders and their families).

Custodian and correctional officials rehabilitation programs
