"Prison is a place of deep darkness, housing the most lost and least among us. These women are often those who have lived through immense trauma, with childhoods and experiences incomprehensible to many of us.

 

TJI not only tells women of the love of Jesus, but comes alongside with grace and compassion and shows them the love of Jesus."

STATE WOMEN'S PRISON 

​The Florida Women's Reception Center (FWRC) is a state prison.

Every woman processing through any of the 67 county jails in the state serve time in FWRC first.  Here they officially become property of the state, are medically screened, learn the rules of prison life, and complete prison orientation. This is also where they meet The Jesus Infusion.  

These women have just been given sentences anywhere from one year in prison up to a life sentence. FWRC is fertile soil for the gospel!  Thursday evenings TJI spends time with the women at FWRC, leading classes, holding prayer meetings and Bible studies.  Regular chapel services are also held here.
