Religious Services

Mission Statement

The mission of Religious Services is to provide opportunity for inmates to explore and practice their faith or spirituality individually and corporately from intake through re-entry into the community.
In order to accomplish this mission we identify the following goals: 
  • Administrative Procedures:​​​​
    • To streamline and coordinate statewide Religious Services practices for efficiency, productivity and consistent application. 
  • Working Relationships: 
    • To develop and maintain professional, caring and supportive relationships in our working environment. 
  • Department Ethics:
    • To promote ethical and compassionate relationships and procedures within the Department of Corrections.​​
  • Passion and Calling:
    • To relate to all inmates, especially at times of crisis or loss, with care and understanding that reflects our passion and calling to serve the entire population.
  • Victim Services: 
    • To provide respectful and compassionate services to victims and survivors of crime in a way that does not cause further harm.
