Kingdom Boundaries Prison Aftercare (KBPA) continues to grow and expand. In 2013 KBPA was established with the idea of assisting men as they left the prison system. We would simply meet them at the gate and plug them into existing programs that were currently operating in the area.
It soon became apparent that the lack of safe suitable housing was a large deterrent to the success of men re-entering society. KBPA started with a single room in a motel for 3 men. God has blessed KBPA. It has now grown and is able to offer housing for up to 22 men. Since starting the housing portion of the ministry, KBPA has provided housing for 135 plus men. It has also assisted many others with other types of support in these few short years.
It is because of this that the current staff has not been able to keep up with the needs of the individuals that are seeking help. To better serve men as they leave the prison system and possibly start a program for women, KBPA has hired Kevin Hagen on a part-time basis.
Kevin's position will be office manager. He will help and assist Rhonda, Mark, and myself. This will free up time for us which will allow us to spend more time with the residents and with those supporting KBPA.
There will be more about Kevin in our next email.
Thank you for your prayers and support!
Jeff Haverhals - Ministry Director
