Supporting Kairos is easy, and your small monthly donation ($5 is suggested) will ensure that volunteers will continue visiting prisons and bringing people to Christ.
One cup of Starbucks coffee a month is a sacrifice most of us could sustain for such an effective mission.
Kairos in Action
- Approximately 1,500 residents have been through Kairos at NECX
- Kairos men and women have been active at NECX for over 18 years
- Kairos graduates’ recidivism rates can be reduced by 50%. In a study of 505 inmates released from Florida prisons, the recidivism rate was only 15.7% among those who had participated in one Kairos session, and just 10% among those who had participated in two or more Kairos sessions. The non-Kairos control group in the study had a recidivism rate of 23.4%.
- Incarcerated participants who are released re-enter the outside world with a God centered perspective and focus on becoming productive citizens.
- The next generation experiences a change in the family members coming out of prison, who begin to model a lifestyle without crime. The cycle of crime can be broken.
- Female family members find support, strength and encouragement.
- Youthful offenders acquire new God-centered values and change their direction in life.
- Families are reunited with a hope for the future
