CELEBRATION DAYS

Everything you need to know and more!


WHAT IS A CELEBRATION DAY???

Allow us to explain. First, let's get some background information.

HR Ministries is a ministry of reconciliation. We focus on redemption, reconnection, and reentry. We have 29 programs in 23 facilities in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama.
Our programs includes Malachi Dads, Rubies for L.I.F.E., Celebrate Recovery Inside, and a Parenting Class. The facilities includes but are not limited to prisons, county jails, rehabs, and halfway houses. 

At any given time, we are ministering to over 1000 inmates. Of course, we can't do this alone. With the help of devoted volunteers who give at least two hours per week to sit in with a group of inmates, we journey through numerous Bible studies. Our God-given programs are designed to teach the inmates their identity in Christ, their worth in Christ, and the parent God intended them to be.

Part of our structured and HRM Board of Directors approved programs is what we call Celebration Days. Let's get this out of the way before moving forward, not every facility where we serve allows this part of the program. We would love to have this option but we are blessed to have it at the ones we do. Actually, this year was the first time since 2016 that we have gotten to have Celebration Days, so we are very excited to offer this part of the program again. 
Celebration Days are a day where we bring the children of the inmates inside the prison. The parent and child(ren) have a day of reconnecting and healing. The day is filled with carnival games, inflatables, board games, lunch, quiet time, and a presentation from a special guest. It's a beautiful day to witness! 

Each inmate is assigned a family assistant volunteer team. These volunteers stay with the children and parent throughout the event. The volunteers are specifically trained to help ease the transition of seeing the parent inside the facility. They encourage the child and parent to bond and are there to help guide the visit, if needed.  

We even cater to the caregivers who bring the children. While the child(ren) are inside the prison with their parent, the caregiver is on the premises in what we call the Caregiver Program. All caregivers are required to attend. They also have a day of activities planned as in panel discussions designed to help them with issues that they face while caring for the child of an inmate. Many are family members; therefore, we encourage reconnection and healing throughout the day. 

Now, let's get to the reason of this email. We need your help. We will need numerous volunteers to make these events a success. 
We have many different roles to be filled inside and outside the prisons. 
Please watch the videos in this email and pray for your role in the event.
