“I’ve been doing time for 28 straight years. I watched my son grow up through visits and photos. Your program helped me send love through Prison Fellowship Angel Tree. With your help and my family’s love, it helps keep my son from following the same path I followed like my father before me. So thank you! Thank you for more than just the resources, but for your help and kindness.” –Jacob, Incarcerated in Texas. #PFAngelTree #incarceration #family

“Camp has so many benefits for developing personally, physically, emotionally, and overcoming obstacles. Sometimes Angel Tree camp pushed me to do something I was afraid to do. But I’m thankful now. It was so wonderful being pushed out of my boundaries in a safe place, with counselors and camp friends surrounding me. When you’re at camp, you have people to support you and catch you when you fall.” #AngelTree #PrisonFellowshipAngelTree #camping #kids

It was a good day, indeed.

From our Prison Fellowship Angel Tree sports camp in San Antonio today: This little boy showed up this morning crying and had to be coaxed out of his mother’s arms to go on the football field. By the end of the day, he was referring to the teenager in this picture as his best friend. The teen was part of Cornerstone Church football and volunteered his time to help on the football field.

Building a New Life: A Fugitive Who Couldn’t Outrun God’s Mercy

"There are a lot of programs where kids get gifts … but this was something personalized, almost as if we were face to face, like I could reach out and touch them. I could not believe that."

Raul fled Communism to find a new life. Years later, he was on the run again, this time from justice. But to find freedom, he had to face his consequences.

How a Man Chasing Worldly Things Became a Joyful Giver

"[Prison Fellowship Angel Tree] would give me a platform to be able to witness. I would get so many men showing up at the [prison] chapel just to pick up those Angel Tree forms. It gave those of us who were Christians a time to minister to these guys."

The generosity of strangers helped Oscar Rosales stay connected to his chilren even while incarcerated. It also changed his life mission.

New Jersey Woman Spearheads 'Angel Tree' Service Project To Help Children Of Incarcerated Parents

Along with her sorority sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha, 83-year-old June Lockett of New Jersey has been serving hundreds of children of incarcerated parents through Prison Fellowship’s Angel Tree program since 2013. “It’s a joy to know these families because they’re just great,” she said. Watch her story at the link:

"The purpose was first just to give a Christmas gift in the name of the parent so the child knows the parent was thinking about them and loved them," 83-year-old June Lockett said.

“You made my day, and I know she will appreciate it. The kid’s Bible was delivered today, and my granddaughter was elated with joy. My wife was also happy because she reads to her before she goes to sleep each night. This is a great Bible, and I am happy to receive it for her. She just started school on Monday, and she had butterflies the first couple of days, but now she is eager and excited to go to school. Thank you and God bless your organization.”

“I’ve been to camp 9 years. Denise, a counselor, had a huge impact on my life, when she was telling me her story, and it was just like, ‘Oh, there’s other people that have lived life harder than me and have experienced rougher things in life than I did. And it’s just, ‘Oh, I thought I had the worst of it!’” #AngelTree #AngelTreeCamping #incarceration #children #family

A Rebel on the Streets Finds the Way to Life - Angel Tree

"I wasn't a believer [in Christ], but Angel Tree said they would give gifts to my child," says Rafael. That was enough for him to sign up for the Angel Tree Christmas program. … And every year, his relationship with his daughter grew closer.

Running the streets felt like freedom to Rafael, but he was hurtling toward destruction. In prison, a flyer caught Rafael’s eye, and everything changed.

“I always questioned God a lot. Like, God, why would You put me through all these things for nothing? There's nothing good that's gonna come out of this. But as He was pushing me more towards camp, I realized God sent me here as a kid and let me grow up here and had counselors build relationships with me and pour His love into me, so that I could come back and do the same.” #AngelTree #Camping #kids #love

When Families Serve a Prison Sentence: A Caregiver’s Story

"Having a loved one in prison is hard. You're doing time with them," says Karen. When her grown daughter went to prison, Karen became mom to her daughter's young children. It was the most difficult thing she’s ever done—and she would do it all over again if she had to.

When her daughter went to prison, Karen accepted the dual role of Mom and Grandma to take care of two little ones. It was difficult.

“My grandson left a very large, mirrored door in my garage and later decided he didn't want it. I noticed a workman with a large truck in my neighborhood, and offered him $20 to remove the mirror. When I tried to pay him, the young man said no, he didn't want it. I went home and remembered the Christmas gift program you run [Angel Tree]. So I went back and told him I’d like to send the money to your program and told him what it was. Very quietly he murmured that HE had been one of those children without a parent who was in jail. He had tears in his eyes and thanked me. I didn't tell him I sent $50 instead of $20. Now we're friends!! Your blessings go far and touch many hearts—connecting strangers and healing wounds. I'll remember you next year!! God bless you all.” – Patty

General information

An estimated 1.7 million children have a mom or dad in prison. The number is huge – but so is the opportunity. Angel Tree is a ministry that reaches out to the children of inmates and their families with the love of Christ. It seeks to transform the lives of these families and to reconcile them to their Heavenly Father and each other. In Matthew 18:5 Jesus said, “Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.” There are children right in your community who are among the most at-risk children in the nation. Angel Tree provides an opportunity to connect with those families and begin ministering to them at Christmas and then continue through a variety of year-round ministry opportunities.
