Join us and make a long-lasting difference in the many lives you will touch, including their children next generation. Our Chaplaincy born out of the heart of our Founder and Bishop Frank Costantino whose life was transformed while incarcerated after building a relationship with the Chaplain. He knew as a result, that all facilities need to have Chaplains. We have continued to find ways to have some Chaplains because of the tremendous value to those we serve. We do not receive funding from the Federal, State, County, or local governments. Simply put we do what we can, but need your support both financially, volunteer service, and other donations, such as clothing, toiletries, bicycles, Bibles and other religious books, musical instruments, and fitness equipment, and more.
Chaplaincy supports the mission and vision of Bridges International’s holistic 4-Dimensional approach for wholeness and successful reintegration into the community. You may hear about those who return to drugs and crime. Unfortunately, you may not hear about those who have made positive and meaningful change. These are usually individuals have returned to their spiritual roots or embrace a new strength through a spiritual life. Their lives are transformed and as a result so are their relationships with their family, their children, and friends. This is one of the benefits of coming through our Chaplaincy program.
