JSCF strives to empower the ex-offender, veterans and the homeless through information and education, along with emotional and faith-based support that will strengthen your way of life
To see a world where hope is restored, love is shown and aid is given.
To see a world where men, women, boys, and girls can walk in love.
And to see a world where the prisons are empty and families are reunited.
Isaiah 61:1The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.
It became painfully clear that incarceration and the cycle of recidivism are indicators of a weak value system and lack of faith based mentoring. We received our 501(c) (3) tax-exempt advance ruling in April 2006. One of our homes is in the Capitol View area of Atlanta, housing 2 families was re-opened March 1, 2012. In 2008 we leased 2 apartment units in Summerdale Commons Apartment Complex – housing 6 men up to a 2 year stay. This year we have housed 34 men, 5 were Veterans, 10 received Social Security Benefits, 20 found permanent housing and were placed at various job sites. We also have life skill classes to assist them with a productive life. J.S.C.F., Inc . offers Spiritual Mentoring and Counseling as well as transportation services. J.S.C.F., Inc . believes if each person reaches one individual, the world would be in divine order. We empower our clients with information and education, along with emotional and faith-based support that will strengthen their lives breaking the cycle of recidivism and homelessness.
