Caring for Ex-Offenders
The Alpha Course has been running in prisons since 1995 and many men and women who came to faith in prison then looked to the local church for support on release. A need was identified to support men and women effectively as they faced the daunting challenge of reintegrating into society having been in prison. CFEO's vision is to reduce reoffending by reintegrating ex-offenders into society through the local church.
