The Prophet Isaiah declared that people are called and prepared to serve those who are poor, in distress, have broken hearts, feel trapped by circumstances both physically and spiritually, and to free those in prison. Their message would bring joy, hope, healing and purpose to those they serve. These individuals will also work on rebuilding and restoring the foundations of our ruined cities. (Isaiah 61:1-4)
The staff of A Future and A Hope Foundation are called to be these types of people. We are implementing a unique program with inmates at the Kane County Correctional Center to provide them with the skills and services they need to be successful in life while in prison and to assist them in the transition to life outside of prison. If we ignore these men and their need, over 67% will return to prison in three years. By neglecting them, their families and our cities are being ruined. This is an enormous task and we cannot do it without your help.
Due to the current economic and political volatility in our State and Federal government, it is no longer prudent to depend on funding from these entities. The Foundation is committed to developing a private funding base to ensure the sustainability of services to ex-offenders and other programs we develop. To make this a reality we must raise $120,000 over the next six months. Sound impossible? A recent political candidate raised hundreds of millions of dollars with contributions of less than $100. It is possible! But, we need many financial partners, both large and small, to achieve our goal. For example, 100 people donating $100/ month would raise $120,000 in one year. 400 people donating $25/month would accomplish the same goal. Monthly donations are crucial to the ongoing sustainability of our service to ex-offenders. If you are able, larger one time gifts are also needed and welcomed.
