Learn more about the JRS/USA detention chaplaincy program
JRS/USA’s chaplaincy services provide trained chaplains who minister to the spiritual and pastoral needs of detainees. These chaplains understand how important an individual’s faith is in the context of a detention center. They help detainees deal with the emotional and spiritual factors associated with separation from family, loss of economic stability, and pending legal decisions. They encourage men and women to strengthen their religious beliefs and attitudes as they struggle to cope with the despair and uncertainty of detention.
