< Back to Main Prison Ministries Page

The Juvenile Criminal Justice System mirrors that of the adult system: there is a detention facility where minors are held waiting to go to court for their alleged offenses and the Juvenile Prison where offenders are sent to serve their time.  When these young men and women enter either of these facilities they are in a time of crisis, and True Freedom is there to reach them with the Gospel.

The True Freedom Juvenile Prison Ministry provides chaplaincy coverage seven days a week conducting services and counseling at the Cuyahoga Country Juvenile Detention Center in inner-city Cleveland and the Cuyahoga Hills Juvenile Prison.  These frightened and abused youngsters need a hug; they need hope, and they need the loving message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to help them turn their lives to a new path.
