Deaf Prison Ministries Network
Deaf Prison Ministries Network was established in 2000 as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that seeks to help Deaf people affected by crime. We seek to accomplish this through a three-fold vision:
- Networking which we do with faith based prison ministries, churches, social service agencies, government agencies, legal organizations, Deaf advocacy organizations, and prison facilities to promote awareness of and to meet the needs of Deaf people who are either incarcerated, formerly incarcerated or have relatives who are either incarcerated or formerly incarcerated.
- Development of research and materials to be used for the purpose of promoting, educating and training organizations or people so that they can become better equipped to meet the needs of the Deaf who are affected by crime. The material and training will be publicly available to anyone who requests them.
- Ministry to the Deaf who are affected by crime to meet their personal, emotional, spiritual and physical needs where legally appropriate. This will be accomplished by utilizing our network to reach out to them as well as provide an aftercare facility to help previously incarcerated Deaf people to be re-integrated into society.
