“Breaking the Generational Cycles of Incarceration”

“Breaking the Generational Cycles of Incarceration”

Oklahoma has the highest incarceration rate in the world...

For the last 25 years, CJAMM has been providing some amazing “second chances” for individuals leaving incarceration to become healthy, happy, productive, and contributing members of society.

Just recently, I was able to pick up a gentleman from the Department of Corrections who was joining our family at an Exodus House.  He said, “I need some Jesus!”

We assured him, he’s at the right place to get a good serving of Jesus.

We’ve really got something going on that’s special….blessed from prayers and support from believers across the state.  The New Day Camps touch lives of young people in ways that we don’t always see immediately….but seeds are planted!

 Just recently, we received a matching grant from the Keatley Family Foundation that will match dollar-for-dollar every donation (better known as investments) that comes in for the endowment fund until December 31, 2021.

Thank you for helping provide that forgiving, loving, second chance to families who need for our ministry. Like the Tina’s, Tara’s, Grant’s, Grayling’s, Cathy’s, Bill’s, Stacy’s, and so many others who’ve gotten a second chance at life.

Forever CJAMM,

Keith Dobbs
Executive Director
