“Jesus proclaimed He came to set the captives free. There are many prison/jail ministries that go in the prisons and preach that Good News. However, there are very few that take men and women out of prison and teach them HOW to live and walk this new life. The entire team at Shepherds Fold is committed to just that, regardless of cost or personal involvement.
I was diagnosed with stage three non-small cell lung cancer while incarcerated. No facility was willing to take on my incapacitation. I was “dead weight” and not likely to be productive to the financial aspect of a non-profit facility. Shepherds Fold took me in without hesitation and allowed me to extend my stay at the facility. They not only provide me room and board, but they make sure I get to all the treatments and doctor’s appointments as well as constantly check on my well being. Sure, salvation is of the utmost importance, but learning how to live that life is vital to successful living in this life. Like Jesus did, Shepherds Fold not only tells you how to live, they show everyone of us how to be “free indeed.”
