Who We are
Alaska Correctional Ministries is a non-profit organization that has been partnering with the Department of Corrections Chaplaincy Ministry statewide since 1980, providing life-changing ministry to Alaska’s prisoners and ex-offenders. Together, we are providing ministry and programs that offer hope and real solutions in the lives of offenders through the transforming work of God.

Our faith based safe living homes are operated by Alaska Correctional Ministries Inc. The mission of these homes is to provide a Christ-centered living environment that includes peer accountability and structure for up to 14 residents who have been released from prison and are returning to the community.
Within this multi-phased program services include case management, substance abuse/relapse prevention classes, counseling, family reunification, financial planning and referral services related to employment, transportation, food and clothing.
Most individuals residing in these Safe Living homes are on Probation or Parole. Residents pay rent of about $500.00 per month which includes all utilities, internet access, and food and clothing that has been donated by various organizations.
The New Hope Safe Living Home for women is located in east Anchorage and the New Horizons Safe Living Home is in west Anchorage.
The most urgent need for those being released from prison is safe and affordable housing. Our homes are a safe refuge and provide numerous resources and support as our residents adjust to life in the free world.
How can you help?
Transportation, clothing, food, personal care baskets, appliances, furniture, mentor a resident and help with classes and Bible studies.

Transitional living community
TLC-based program that seeks to equip Christian inmates in two fundamental areas:
1. Christian Education
2. Life Skills
To proclaim God’s redemptive and unfailing love to Alaska’s prisoners and form a bridge of transformation and hope as these “returning citizens” find their place in society.
To partner with the Department of Corrections Chaplaincy Ministry in bringing life-changing ministry and programs to prisoners and ex-offenders through the mobilization and equipping of Alaska’s faith community and by developing private sector funding to support state-wide ministry operations.
Our inmate-operated coffee shop provides life skills for women in the TLC and Faith Wing programs at Hiland Mountain Correctional Center. They learn skills like: leadership, barista training which often leads to becoming Kaladi-certified barista, customer service, and bookkeeping just to name a few.
