Prison Ministry

For Dignity is a non-profit 501(C3) organization that provides resources and mentorship for women in prisons, strip clubs, and recovery homes and helps them rise from cycles of defeat.

The For Dignity team travels to the United States Correctional Facilities and provides motivational programs designed to empower women through overcoming testimony and proven keys to breakthrough repetitive, defeating mindsets, clearing a path for healing, growth, and change.

Once a month, For Dignity provides free Dignity Bags to women working in strip clubs. These bags contain resources, hotline numbers, and personal items. When needed and asked, the For Dignity team assists those struggling with addictions to enter detox or rehab.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help women experience hope and rise above incarceration, exploitation, and addictions.


…I was in prison, and you came to me. Mathew 25:36 ESV
