Lion's Roar Prison Ministry

Lions Roar Prison Ministry focuses on the children left behind when a parent or loved one is incarcerated. Our main point is trying to keep the children connected to the parent. We offer FREE transportation to visit their loved ones from anywhere in the state to wherever their parent may be incarcerated at. With this comes a faith based atmosphere full of love, kindness, and hope. We have dedicated volunteers to help mentor these kids. Bonds are built and anything we can do to try and bring the family together and help repair the past, we do. Right now we are collecting funds to have a Church Camp, completely free of charge, for the youth of those with incarcerated parents. We want to let them know they are not alone and that many other kids have the same feelings and fears.
