About The Oaks of Righteousness
History and Future Plans
We began this ministry in 2012 after many years of teaching and mentoring women in the Texas prison system. Statistics reveal that 8 out of 10 ex-offenders in Texas will return to prison; however, with Christ-centered discipleship and mentoring, recidivism is reduced to a 1 in 10 chance of re-offending.
There is a shared belief among us that living in a safe, faith based house is necessary for ex-offenders to fully reintegrate into society and become the women that God intends them to be. Prison experts acknowledge transitional living as a pressing need. Without a safe place, offenders return to the people, places, and habits that led them into prison. The Oaks of Righteousness is being established as a way to break the cycle of addiction and homelessness, offering hope for a better future.
