KAIROS OUTSIDE is dedicated to supporting the families of men and women who are, or have been, incarcerated in the country’s state or federal correctional facilities, as well as county jails or offender programs.

The spouses, parents, other relatives, and friends of the incarcerated often “do time” right along with their relatives or friends. It is important for them to know that they are not alone and that there is a Christian community that cares about them.

KO offers an opportunity for emotional healing, spiritual teaching, and building community for women who have a loved one who is incarcerated or who have themselves been incarcerated.
This support is provided in a safe environment with Christian people during a Kairos Outside weekend. During this weekend, the guests will have a chance to interact with other women who are in similar situations and learn how to form small groups of support, thereby giving them strength in their life journey.

The purpose of Kairos Outside is to demonstrate God’s grace and love through Christian support for women who have relatives/friends who are or who have been incarcerated.
