Housing Readiness Program Begins

Faith Seeds Ministries has begun a new Housing Readiness Program at the Western Massachusetts Regional Women's Correctional Center.  The program was introduced to 30 women on Oct. 31st.  The first of four sessions will take place on Nov. 25th for those women who have enrolled.

Participants will learn eligibility and suitability criteria for long term affordable housing, develop and implement action plans to help them address and overcome housing obstacles, and become aware of the housing application and wait list process. 

This program helps to address one of the major barriers returning citizens face upon release from incarceration.  We thank the housing providers working with us in this innovative program as well as the Hampden County Sheriff's Department.

Faith Seeds Ministries

Faith Seeds Ministries focuses on "proclaiming liberty to the captives," according to Isaiah 61:1. Our mission is to teach Biblical principles to women in prison that result in freedom, restoration,  healing, and equipping for successful re-entry back into society.

This mission is achieved in several ways:

(a) Conducting Discipleship Seminars;

(b) Providing Biblical instruction through Correspondence Studies;and

(c) Equipping women with tools and skills for successful re-entry.

Our woman's prison ministry began in 2005.  We have a heart to see the Lord set captives free, restore broken lives, and bring healing to women who are behind bars.  We offer discipleship seminars, resources, and correspondence Bible Studies to incarcerated women across the United States.  

The ministry's Ruth Project provides women with information and resources to help in the process of successful re-entry.  This is done through our Human Trafficking Resource Information and our Housing Readiness Workshops and Information. 
Faith Seeds operates out of the Vineyard Church of Hopkinton, MA:  www.vineyardhopkinton.org.
