If you are a family member or friend looking for help! Give us a call. Let us show you how we can help your loved one be a success!
Belief: There is no one that will have as profound an effect on the children as the parents. If we want successful children, we must train; we must create successful parents.
Our cause/Call: Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of Widows. Isa 1:15
- By helping the men, of the family to find housing and gainful employment, we believe that we can help them to have a better chance of being successful and not returning to prison.
- Studies have shown that a high percentage of the men in the penal institutions have followed in the foot steps of their fathers. We believe that by helping the fathers, and returning them to their families, that we can interrupt the cycle and keep families together!
Problem: We believe that the children are the innocent victims in the case of parents that get into trouble. Statistics have shown that children of convicted felons are over 7 times more likely to go to prison themselves. This means that the effect of harsher prison sentences and increased prison population is exponential. The cycle must be broken. The current system is not working. We must attack from a different front!
How do we do this?: We are not Just a halfway house. We have developed a comprehensive system, that includes the family from the very start. We utilize the “Wings for Life” curriculum developed by Ann Edenfield Sweet in order to help train the family, thereby increasing the “Returning Citizen’s” chances of success. You can look at the details of our system here
Our System is Based up the biblical belief that God Loves Underdogs: When you humble yourself and ask for his help, He says “Get up you mighty man of Valor” I am going to use you to change the world!
Target Population: Men from the immediate Clovis/Portales area coming out of prison, jail or treatment centers. We are approved by the State of NM to receive men who are currently on felony probation or parole.
The 2014 Wings for Life season is OFFICIALLY Kicked off! We had a great turnout last night with many participants from Drug Court and a several volunteers from the community participating! Food was provided by Foxy’s and AS ALWAYS was fantastic! No speaker, we just did a mixer and practiced our communication skills to get everyone back into the swing of …Read More

One of the problems that was identified in the Clovis City Panning meeting was the disarray of our current neighborhoods. We also recognize that our “Returning Citizens” of the felon category find it difficult, if not impossible to 1: Find a decent paying job 2: Find decent, affordable housing. This creates frustration, and in the un-trained, under-counseled parolee/probationer, creates anger, …Read More
