Our vision is that all incarcerated women in Spartanburg County through faith based development will realize their value and purpose to become independent, positive assets to our community so that they will not return to incarceration.
Nannie Jefferies, Executive Director of Angels Charge Ministry and Pastor at Maranatha Free Church of Jesus Christ started this program in January 2014 after seeing many of the same women return to jail because they had to go back to live in the same environment they came from. Angels Charge provides the crucial step of transitional housing for 12-18 months in order to help women change their patterns.
While living in our housing, women receive:
Assistance with finding & using community resources & healthcare
Help enrolling in GED programs and Adult Education
Counseling for domestic violence, addiction, and mental health issues
Job skill development
Help finding jobs and transportation
Personal Case Management
We believe that women have the potential and right to live satisfying, productive lives. Women who have been incarcerated are often defined solely by their criminal histories. We believe that women who have made poor choices should not forever be limited by their mistakes.
We currently have three residential homes and can house a total of 14 women at a time. Based on the needs of our community we would like to add at least four more homes. If you can help us by donating a home, or financing a home, please contact Nannie Jefferies at firstname.lastname@example.org.
