Jails and prisons invariably provide religious support to inmates, but few agencies have chaplains who solely support correctional staff. Staff deserve and need spiritual support. They serve in a tough environment — plus their shifts mean they often miss uplifting holidays, weekends, family celebrations, and faith services. Many in corrections say that their work is unseen, unknown, and unappreciated by the public. These “hidden heroes” welcome volunteer chaplains who initiate contact and provide a convenient, caring, confidential ear. When distressed, staff typically don’t reach out for help; but a roving chaplain who checks on every on-duty member can uncover and support anguished hearts. It helps to share distress, to release it, knowing “I’m not alone.” This can aid emotional and physical well-being. Since its launch in January 2018, this roving, chaplains-just-for-staff initiative has been successful at Cook County jail – so much so that three of its 30-year COs returned after retirement to join the chaplain team!





Criminal Justice and related professionals are welcome to attend the live webinar event at no charge.
