Faith-Based Support

Faith-Based Services and Support

The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) provides inmates the opportunity to explore and practice their faith or spirituality, either individually or in a group setting. The department's Religious Services unit actively strives to present itself as open and welcoming to community faith-based groups, to establish a streamlined and consistent system, and to provide inmates with many accessible programs both inside and outside of prison. 

These services depend greatly on volunteers, so services vary by institution. For more information on faith-based services offered at a facility, contact the facility chaplain.

If you are interested in volunteering with Religious Services at a DOC facility, visit our Volunteer page.

Home for Good in Oregon

Home for Good in Oregon (HGO) is a state-wide re-entry program offered by Religious Services, and the purpose of this program is to work with communities so that men and women exiting prison will be welcomed and supported by faith-based community partners as they transition back to their families and neighborhoods. Visit the HGO page to learn more.
