Prison Visitation Through arrangement with Prison Staff Prison Care Ministries visit the serving prisoner one on one and interview men for suitability for support accommodation. On-going visits and letter writing ensure that a relationship is built prior to the men being released.

Support Accommodation Prison Care Ministries have 4 support houses that accommodate 3-5 men living in a flatting type situation, are drug and alcohol free with a 10pm curfew and weekly house meeting/bible study.

Through staff and volunteers men are given support as they reintegrate back into community, family and friends. Ongoing support is given as residents move in to their own accommodation.

Referrals come from Prison staff and Chaplains, serving and released prisoners, families or community and Government organizations.

Support to Families Prison Care Ministries offer assistance to those in prison who may have a lack of family and/or community support on their release and when appropriate link up with the family and offer support in a way that will meet the needs of both parties as they arise.

Prison Release Van Prison Care Ministries when possible meet the prison transport vehicles at the Hamilton Travel Centre. Released prisoners are offered support. Some have already made arrangements and do not need assistance, while others need support in getting bus tickets to their hometown. They can spend hours waiting for their bus so welcome the opportunity to talk, or go to the office for a coffee and phone family.
