What We Do
For our jail and street outreach, Mission:USA uses a small, highly skilled staff to lead our intensive program. Our strategy is based on multiplication; teaching former inmates and gang members who have succeeded how to help others through the transition process. This technique has proven effective, because it provides a comfortable and culturally appropriate environment for newcomers.
We minister to young men and women inside the jails and on the streets after they are released. Very few programs in the nation can legitimately claim to do so.
Our program utilizes large group meetings and one-on-one counseling. Many of our initial contacts are made with gang members in prison who want to change their lives, but don't have any idea how to do it. We minister to them through visits, phone calls, and letters
Additionally, Mission:USA serves the needs of at-risk young people online. Through a combination of blogs, podcasts, and other media, we help unchurched, at-risk, and underserved teens and young adults tackle the big problems in their lives, and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
Mission:USA also provides training and encouragement to churches and para-church organizations looking to use proven urban ministry strategies in their own ministries. Click here to learn more.
