U.S. Prisons

As Impact Junkies, we are constantly searching for new ways to love people and change lives! For this incredible venture, we are partnering with The Princess Within Conference (a ministry of National ALJC Women’s Esprit President Karen Rhinehart) to bring a unique program to incarcerated women across the nation. It is all about CHANGE! In both spiritual and daily living. The number of women in state correctional facilities has increased by over 700% since 1980. Current statistics show that almost half of women convicted will reoffend. The Princess Within Conference aims to change that! During this program, you will not only participate in the two day conference focused on spiritual change, you'll also join in building out curriculum to defend against recidivism. The most amazing part- you'll engage in hands on training that will give you the tools to bring The Princess Within to your own state! Richard Sterns said it like this, “So many people are crying out to God for His help. Might YOU be the answer to one of their prayers?” There's only one way to find out!
