Change a life.
There is a stark contrast between someone who is well supported as they leave prison or addiction recovery and someone who is not. Your support not only impacts these individuals but also has a follow-on effect impacting society and ultimately the Kingdom of God.
Whitestone believes the local church is the best place to demonstrate God's message of love for ex-offenders and former addicts.
Mentors are a key part of our participants’ success. In addition to showing-up, listening, affirming, and walking alongside; mentors build-in by asking good questions and relating their own experiences.
Hiring a Whitestone participant is both fulfilling and rewarding. One of our employers has told us his Whitestone-referred employee is a top performer.
Supporters and Partners
Whitestone has benefited tremendously from the wise counsel, support, direction, and prayers of many organizations.
Make a difference in someone’s life.
As a church member, mentor, employer, supporter, or partner you can help change someone’s life.
For those who have been shut out of society, the simple act of someone turning up to share their time and be a friend makes a powerful statement. For the first time in years, the forgotten feel like they matter. God calls us to love God and to love our neighbour. In the original Greek, neighbour means "your fellow human.” Matthew 25:36 calls us to visit those in prison.
Whitestone is offering you an opportunity to help heal broken lives and fulfill the second great commandment. Consider serving as a friend, mentor, prayer partner and employer. Whitestone provides training so you are effective and equipped. Picture yourself as Jesus waiting outside the gate of a prison to greet the ex-offender who doesn’t know where to go. Picture yourself as Jesus becoming a mentor, friend, or prayer partner to the ex-offender or former addict. "As you have done this to the least of these, you have done it unto me."
There is a stark contrast between someone who is well supported as they leave prison or addiction recovery and someone who is not. The support you offer not only impacts these individuals but also has a follow-on effect impacting society and ultimately the Kingdom of God. You will be surprised to see the major impact your seemingly small gestures of love can make in the transformation of these lives.
