How we’re helping

“This ministry has helped me get through the incarceration of my son! The love and support of everyone is above all else. The love of Christ in this ministry is awesome! I urge anyone affected by incarceration to not miss out on this ministry.”

“By attending the support group meetings, I’ve met other families who share similar struggles. I’ve learned various ways of saving money when putting money on the commissary account and the freedom of walking in forgiveness with others.”

“After my son’s arrest and conviction, I experienced shock followed by depression. I felt so lost and all alone. Had there been a group like Fortress of Hope where I lived, perhaps it would not have taken me so long to come to terms of acceptance of our new reality.”

The Lord is our FORTRESS and in Him we find hope.

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. (Psalm 118:2 NKJV)

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.” (Psalm 91:2)

“For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress.” (Ps 59:16b ESV)
