Be a Prison Volunteer from Home with CREATIVE OPTIONS

Last year, 802 prison inmates were released into the Salem area. Recent studies show a clear correlation between how successful a man or woman will be able to transition back to society by the contact they have with healthy, caring people while incarcerated. This fact was so important that Jesus spoke to his disciples about it: “When I was in prison, you visited me.” Mt 25:37

CREATIVE OPTIONS is Catholic prison ministry, visiting prison inmates via mail through Christian self-help programs. Operating solely on donations and volunteers, CREATIVE OPTIONS provides an opportunity to make a tremendous difference in the lives of others. Inmates never have an address or last name of volunteers, making it safe as well as effective. If you feel Jesus may be calling you to serve Him in prison, please call or e-mail Patricia Collins: , 541-259-1477.
