Prisoner Relationship, Resurrection & ReEntry

Mexican gangs are at the intersection of mass incarceration and immigration issues in America today. This is the "double-underground" where we began as a ministry.

Building on Chris' twelve years at Tierra Nueva Ministries in Burlington, WA among Skagit Valley gangs, and many of our team’s lifetimes as a migrant children who grew up--like thousands of others--in extreme poverty, racially isolated in rural communities, exploited by industry, and afraid of the law, we have found those affected by gangs to be uniquely marginalized before, during, and after incarceration. 

While we seek to love and support opportunities for all the imprisoned when we can, we have come to embrace our unique story and strength to serve the least-served population of gangs in the Northwest.
