Encore: Chaplain Euvonka Farabee - Hope After Incarceration
January 22, 2016
Hosted by Nelinia Varenas
Euvonka works to equip correctional leaders, volunteers, and incarcerated men and women to make prisons more rehabilitative places; she advocates for a more restorative criminal justice system; and she collaborates with churches and local service providers to support former prisoners, their families, and their communities. There is hope for restoration and healing for prisoners, their families, victims, and all those who have been impacted by crime. Those who once broke the law can be transformed and mobilized to serve their neighbors, replacing the cycle of crime with a cycle of renewal. Prison Fellowship® trains and inspires churches and communities—inside and outside of prison—to support the restoration of those affected by incarceration.
