Helping end the cycle of crime, high-risk behaviors and family incarceration.

End the Cycle  is a two-pronged non-profit ministry that offers Evangelical and Outreach services to prisoners, their families and those at risk of repeating the cycle of imprisonment and the high risk behaviors that got them there.  We provide FREE, quality faith-based mentoring and family-strengthening programs for all those longing to end the cycle: focusing specifically on prisoners, families of prisoners and at-risk-youth.

We have seasoned, quality mentors, a Certified Chaplain, a Pastor and many other professionals who work with us to achieve our goals. We are also blessed to utilize one of our key-strengths to be able to help support our mentoring programs. That key-strength is our ability to produce and distribute quality Bible-based literature for any demographic situation. Our experienced, faith-filled writers volunteer their time and gifts to help produce materials that reach youth and adults (in prison and out of prison) with Biblically accurate, simple but life-saving messages and lessons.

Our over-all mission is to end the vicious, repetitive cycles of bad choices that end in incarceration – for this generation and the next.  
Children and Youth:  79% of children who have a parent in prison will follow down the same path if they get no form of mentoring or counseling.  It’s time to show these hurting Youth how to choose something other than gangs, drugs and prison.  These children need to know that it IS possible for them to be "more than they can ever think or even imagine." (Eph. 3:20) Through End the Cycle mentoring programs, children learn that they have value, gifts, talents and skills that will allow them to participate in society in a healthy, positive way. By modeling positive choice-making, commitment and love to the children, mentors are able to make a huge impact on the direction these children will take in the future.

End the Cycle is made up of people with various gifts and talents:
