The Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections is always in need of quality volunteers. The youth incarcerated in Idaho need to have the influence of positive role models bringing a positive message to them on a consistent basis.
3 Oaks Ministries is honored contract with the Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections to provide religious services to the three Juvenile Corrections centers across the State of Idaho. Our Faith-based Resource Developers (FRDs), serve juveniles from all cultural and faith backgrounds and help to develop additional resources for the juveniles through the fostering of community partnerships. We recruiting, training, and deploying volunteers to serve the religious demographics at each facility.
GIVE TO THE IDJC ASSISTANCE FUND
The Juvenile Assistance Fund helps meet the needs of juveniles currently incarcerated as well as those preparing for reintegration into the community. Most of the juveniles are placed in facilities far away from their homes, and this can lead to a limited number of parental visits for families who are unable to afford the cost of the trip. Monetary donations from the community are used to purchase gas cards and aid in hotel stays for indigent families that helps make these visits possible. We believe that maintaining family bonds is critical to the juvenile’s reintegration and success.
Funds also go toward gift cards to help juveniles who are releasing back to the community. Many of these youth have little to no support and require the basics such as toiletries and clothing. These small items go a long way in helping these young people feel that they have value!
