HOPE for Prisoners

Christian Associates was instrumental in establishing the interfaith chaplaincy ministries at Allegheny County Jail.

The HOPE pre-release and aftercare programs, which provide intensive faith-based training and mentoring for inmates and ex-offenders, grew out of our chaplaincy efforts.

Today, the Foundation of HOPE is Christian Associates’ partner in ministry, offering chaplaincy, pre-release, and aftercare at Allegheny County Jail and Shuman Center.
