I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me
– Matthew 25:36
It is the heart of CityHope to plant the local church inside the walls of our local correctional facilities. We take the same weekend and small group experience you would find at each of our campuses inside facilities across lower Alabama to lead men and women to become fully alive in the true hope of Christ.
We minister to inmates on the second Sunday of each month and have a small group in Life Row every Tuesday. Holman is ADOC’s primary correctional facility for housing death row inmates (we call it Life Row) and is the only facility in the state that carries out executions. Holman is classified as a close-custody correctional facility. The inmate population, as of 1/22/23, is 308.
We minister to inmates on the fourth Sunday of each month. G.K. Fountain Correctional Facility opened in 1928 and is located on 8,200 acres about seven miles north of Atmore, AL on Highway 21. Fountain offers vocational programs through the Jefferson Davis Community College and provides trade opportunities in agricultural operations. Fountain is classified as a medium custody correctional facility. The inmate population, as of 1/22/23, is about 1032.
We hold services at Fountain Annex for inmates every Sunday. Fountain Annex houses about 200 inmates from G. K. Fountain who have exhibited good behavior. Some of them are given the opportunity to work at jobs in other facilities and occasionally outside of the facility.
We minister to inmates on the first and third Sundays of each month. Loxley Community Based Facility and Community Work Center opened in October 1995 with a mission of housing low-risk/minimum custody inmates who perform community service work for the state, county, and city agencies. The Center offers substance abuse counseling and educational opportunities. The Loxley Community Work Center is classified as a minimum custody facility. The inmate population, as of 1/22/23, is 303.
We will add a new Correctional Campus, by May 2023, at Mobile Work Release. The majority of the facility’s 108 inmates are Minimum-Community custody and hold positions for private sector employers throughout Mobile and Baldwin counties. The Mobile Community Work Center is classified as a minimum custody facility.
