Lives in Transition (LIT) is an aftercare affiliate of The Saints Prison Ministry. LIT is a faith-based program designed to help ex-offenders adjust to life beyond prison walls. This program was launched in June 2002 for the purpose of providing ex-offenders with a support network upon their release from prison.
LIT offers a support system that addresses every area of a man’s life - physical, emotional, and spiritual - so that when a prisoner gets out, he or she stays out! LIT can help find housing, food, clothing, transportation, and counseling for those struggling with their re-entry to society.
Funded primarily by grants, individuals, and supporting churches, Lives in Transition exists to help any ex-offender that sincerely desires to transform their life.
Inmates are eligible for LIT services if they are serious about living a transformed life, receptive to life-skills training and spiritual guidance, in need of assistance developing a solid parole plan, and either in the process of being released (preferably within six months of release) or recently released.
"I am scheduled for a parole interview soon. Hopefully, the members of the parole board will extend mercy to me so I may get my life back on track. Thank you for your prompt reply to my prior letter and assisting me with information I needed. I can honestly state with conviction that our Lord is truly guiding my faith, working in my life to make me the person he knows I should be. I can’t capture the words to put them in context, however, the feeling is there (smile)."
