Support & Donate

You can support our mission by donating money or supplies.

The mission of La Crosse Jail Ministry is “To provide an opportunity and create an environment for inmates that awakens, renews and stimulates their spiritual life, thereby promoting behavioral change, social reintegration and personal well-being.”

The Jail Ministry provides people in our jail the opportunity to draw strength and guidance in planning for their future outside the jail.

Some of the ways we help include taking care of inmates' basic human needs, helping communicate with families outside of jail, and providing outlets for the extremely stressful environment they must live in - see About Us for a full list of budget priorities.

Your donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your continued generosity!
