GraceInside

GraceInside’s chaplains are like lighthouses beckoning toward a new port for the 30,000 currently incarcerated in Virginia’s state prison system. Prisons can be treacherous seas, but they can also be transformative ones. Virginia is unique in that our chaplains are not state employees. Our chaplains are privately funded by caring individuals, churches, denominations, foundations, and businesses.
