How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
A testimony: "When I came to prison it was like falling into a deep pit. The lowest point of my life. I had no one to turn to, no friends or family to go to for help, and the only thing I could do was look up. All my life I felt like I had to earn God's grace in order for Him to listen to my prayers. My self-worth was based on what I have done. So I began to read the bible to earn God's grace and to find out how others got God to listen to them.
After reading the bible about six months, I soon realized that we can know for sure that we are going to heaven. Salvation is a gift from God.
I've been in prison for 5 and a half years. I spent about 1/3 of that time studying the bible. So now I am here in TLC, and I feel blessed. It really brings a whole new meaning to the word 'family' and 'brothers'. God's love has really shined here. Thank God.
Being here and looking into my past with a different outlook has opened my eyes to a lot. I now know what I did and what lead me into my poor choices. With this new information and the new tools I have learned I can now avoid certain situations that can be a threat of bringing me back into the poor paths that I once took before.
I pray that people who really have a desire to change have the same opportunity as we did. I thank God for being here."
We have 2 Transformation Living Centers in 1 of the correctional facilities and Faith Wings in more of the institutions. Housing is provided through a men's house & a women's house for transition. Many trained volunteers provide mentoring, bible studies, preaching and counseling to people in and out of the facilities all over the state through programs & on an individual basis.
