I have been working with Spirit Key since January 2013. It is my first experience in getting to know former inmates. What has most impressed me about the men at Spirit Key is the lack of blame of others for the situation that resulted in their prison sentences. Without the burden of blame, it has been easier than I expected to develop relationships with these men and I look forward to my visits. We eat together, worship together and have small groups at least twice a month. It is a real joy to see men going to college or finding work. And most importantly they are developing a faith walk.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them find a more sustainable source of income.

I have been volunteering with Spirit Key now for about 6 months. I found out about Spirit Key through Jim Austin who was my roommate at a Kairos Prison Ministry weekend in Huntsville. Jim asked me to come visit one Tuesday night and see what a good thing was going on there. I was hooked! I have attended regularly on the Tuesday Kairos sytle prayer and share events. Allen, Jan and the rest of the team there are really making a difference in these men's lives. Most have never been given a chance to prove they are worth anything, Allen gives them that chance to do so by enabling and encouraging each man to work at something they have a passion for. For many of these men, they would have no other place to turn.

I am always humbled by the amount of passion the men have for Christian fellowship. Some of us volunteers have even come together and sponsored some of these men for Journey to Damascus and Walk to Emmaus weekends and they have flourished!

Great things going on at Spirit Key in advancing the lives of each man to reach the potential of turning their lives around.

I first heard about Spirit Key on the radio. Spirit Key is a faith based transitional work center that teaches work ethics along with christian principles. I have seen Spirit Key go to the utmost to help shape and care for men's lives. Spirit Key provides food and shelter to the homeless, depressed, tired, and just plain old knot heads who have no where else to go. Spirit Key has been my family and mentor, teaching me to always have faith and God will provide.
