Extending the Love Of Christ to Ex-Offenders

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV

Finding a new place in the community can be frightening and emotionally hazardous for someone coming out of prison. If he/she has to go back into the same environment that contributed to his/her delinquency, the odds are stacked against establishing an upright lifestyle.

Due to the high cost of rent in the Twin Cities, and the unwillingness of most people to rent to anyone with a criminal record, only about 1% of existing housing is available to ex-offenders. Often, this will force recently released ex-offenders right back to where they started. CRS provides a home atmosphere that is both aesthetically pleasing and emotionally healthy for men and women who sincerely want to change their lives.
