The Kairos Outside program is a prison ministry of New Mexico. The mission is to bring Christ’s love and forgiveness to all incarcerated individuals, their families and those who work with them, and to assist in the transition of becoming a productive citizen. They serve females and their loved ones aged 20 and older who are or have been incarcerated in any state or federal correctional facility. They offer a weekend retreat in Capitan, NM where women support each other and learn coping techniques, as well as weekly local support groups in various NM locations. At the weekend retreat talk series, women share their life journey. Each Guest has the opportunity to review the talks in a small family group. However, sharing in the small family group is voluntary. The program is interspersed with music, prayer, fun activities and general pampering. The Weekend is Christian in nature, although no religious affiliation is necessary to attend. There is no cost to the Guests.
Mending Hearts is a recovery-based therapeutic community for women. They help women restore their lives from addiction through a long-term treatment program that offers hope and healing in a supportive community environment – regardless of their ability to pay.
