ALL IN COMMUNITY

All In Community is a modern day, Biblical response to the impact of mass incarceration.
At Powell UMC, All In Community responses include:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  • Wallet Collection, In partnership with the Ohio Reformatory for Women (ORW), the Delaware County Reentry Coalition will  be collecting donations of new or gently-used wallets to be provided to women being released from incarceration in the month of December. One of the biggest obstacles for the reentry population is obtaining a legal state ID which is necessary for re-entering the workforce, securing housing, etc. Essential documents have often been taken away, misplaced, or lost during incarceration. We want to provide wallets so these important documents have a place to be stored. Drop off the wallets in the labeled bin found in the Main Hall through the month of October.
  • Welcome Home Bags, Welcome Home a Person Returning from Jail or Prison Persons are released with little or nothing. 
  • HOPE Letters, a regular mentoring correspondence with incarcerated men and women in Ohio’s state prisons. This is a signature initiative of the West Ohio Conference. Training and a year’s commitment is required. Contact sandyhuber@powellumc.org.
  • Support of transitional sober living at Liberty and Unity Houses, Delaware OH. (Ministries of https://www.jacobsway.org/)
