Inside

Inside Out Jail Ministries focuses on the rehabilitation and successful re-entry of men and women inside the Orange County Jail. Currently, the Orange County Jail holds roughly 2,300 men and women who are dealing with a past in criminal mischief and looking to transition smoothly into the Orlando Community. These men and women are provided the opportunity to partner with ISO through educational, spiritual as well as program assistance inside of the jail. ISO provides classes to inmates with the tools to make positive decisions, create SMART goals and developing a release plan (24-72 hour plans) upon release from jail.

Outside

Our mission continues to impact the lives of men and women once released from jail and begin their transition back into their respective communities. We continue to help with Transition Management through help from our volunteers who work with men and women desiring to go to substance treatment programs or human trafficking programs. Our volunteers coordinate with these programs and at times, attorneys to coordinate certain court-ordered programs. The outside volunteers bridge the gap to pre-arrange releases to endure after and transportation to approved programs.

Our Outside team continues to provide spiritual development to men and women as mentors and provide spiritual guidance to those seeking to grow in their faith. We continue to reach out to these men and women as they proceed to become upstanding citizens and offer the assistance of the ISO Community when in need by providing clothing, housing opportunities, employment opportunities as well as transportation if needed to probation.
