I meet the founder Reverend Carmen Warner Robbins when I was in jail being sentenced to prison. After I did a 2 year sentenced Reverend Carmen Warner Robbins came back into my life with a vision and a dream. She shared that dream with me stating that she wanted to know what women being released from jail and prison needed upon their release. I shared with her the needs that I was facing since I was just released and we began to serve others with the same needs. And Welcome Home took off from there! Welcome Home has been so instrumental in my life that I have since moved from San Diego to Fresno where I have started Welcome Home Central Valley and serve women and men the prison in Central California while networking with Welcome Home ministries.

My experience with Welcome Home is one of a professional capacity. I became part of the team approx. 2.5 years ago and it has changed my life both professionally and personally. I have never worked for an organization where you could be so free to be who you are and share with other's the awesomeness of God. I have seen ladies lives changed dramtically as they have come to know the Lord as well as experience the extended family they acquire when they become a Welcome Home woman. Just as the Lord says, "I will never leave nor forsake you" that is what the ladies experience with Welcome Home. Even if they make a mistake, Welcome Home will always be there.

Welcome Home Ministries offers loving support and encouragement to incarcerated women that society would like to ignore. We come along side a woman in jail or prison and offer her our experience, strength and hope with resources to assist her in her new journey of new life in recovery and re-birth. I have been blessed with seven years of serving lovely and courageous women.

Hello, I have had the opportunity to utilize the services of Welcome Home Ministries approximately 8 yrs ago. Due to the nature of my Profession I have chosen to remain annonymous. Today, I take great pleasure in assisting this fine agency in their endeavours as well as receiving the blessings that they have to offer. I can honestly say that WHM is an important asset to our community and is in the process of expanding its services. Thank You WHM and continue to march. Sincerely, A grateful recipient

Welcome Home Ministries (WHM)is a wonderful organization where you can witness beautiful transformations in the lives of women who have previously been incarcerated. WHM works with women who are willing to and want to change their life for the better. I have witnessed the mentors and staff of Welcome Home walk alongside these women providing nationally recognized excellence in mentorship. WHM is a dynamic and loving organization that is dedicated to rebuilding the lives of women and guiding them into a fully restored and successful life.

In a very short time this year they have accomplished so much. They have expanded their mentorship program, they continue to reach out to women who are asking for help, and I have witnessed community support and involvement increase exponentially.

During my committment to the recovery program I am affliated with, I was given an opportunity to work with Welcome Home Ministires in a professional arrangement. Welcome Home needed help with moving their offices and our program offered to help them, showing them that we would like to give back to the community. At the time I got involved, I was re-aquainted with many women I had once known in the past and who have now redirected their lives, through God, this ministry and their recovery. I was very impressed at who these women have become, their strength, their courage and perseverance. This ministry provides peer support as well as a loving connection with a reverend who has never given up on any of the ladies. The reverend has become their teacher, mentor and friend and shows them that they can do anything and their dreams are their goals.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen many women grow and become the ladies God designed them to be. Because of the faith, strength and success of one of these ladies, I have asked for her hand in marriage and thank God daily for her and her example.

As part of a community outreach/advocacy project for our graduate counseling program my cohorts and I conducted research on various non-profits working to assist women in the criminal justice system. This included women currently incarcerated, formerly incarcerated and/or on probation. We were impressed with the effectiveness achieved by the peer counselors with their abilities to motivate and inspire change among the women they served. After observing first hand the work they do among these women we are committed to help them in their mission.

I was helped while serving some time in a San Diego County Jail in 1995. Reverand Carmen helped pray me through a very tough time in my life. I had been getting in trouble since I was 12 years old as I was an addict at a very young age. I was in and out of juvinile halls, the Youth Authority and jails until I was 36 years old. Welcome Home showed me another way of life through the love of God and helped me learn to love my self. I am now able to help other women who are hurting the same way I had been hurting getting involved in Welcome Home. It's like a ripple in a pond. Because these women have a resource to break that chain, whole families are changed. God works that way you know. He breaks that cycle of addiction and restores families. That is His favorite thing to do.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen many lives transformed through involement with this ministry. It works. Women getting their families back after years of being estranged from them is a remarkable thing to see unfold. Mothers see their daughters lives get back on track.
