Hope for Women in Prison

The Ministry of Hope is a community-funded chaplaincy program which raises funds to employ on-site chaplains at Swannanoa Correctional Center for Women (SCCW) in Swannanoa, NC. Our chaplains conduct religious services in the center's chapel and provide pastoral care and spiritual guidance to the inmates. Their guidance and leadership are crucial to helping these women, many of whom struggle with addiction, abuse, and grief issues. The women at SCCW are within five years of release or parole. Our chaplains offer them a sense of hope and real-world self-care tools to manage parenting, relationships, and employment with discernment and spiritual maturity.

The Women Speak

“When I went to prison I thought my life was over. The chaplain helped me to understand my new life had just begun.”

“The chapel was the one place I could go to cry, and sometimes I just need to cry a lot.”

“The chaplain was able to see and hear what I did not want to. Listening to her may have saved my life.”
