Alamance-Orange Prison Ministry is a 501c-3 which exists to provide and promote spiritual comfort and growth to the men assigned to Orange Correctional Center through services rendered by a full-time community funded Chaplain. The Board of the Ministry is responsible for giving guidance and financial support so that the Chaplain can carry out his/her duties.
The Ministry strives to better prepare OCC residents with skills, abilities and motivation to successfully reintegrate into their communities and families upon release and, where possible, provide support and encouragement to those receiving them. This is to be accomplished by connecting all concerned to available resources to be found at OCC and in the surrounding community.
Some of the programs that AOPM supports are:
Administration of religious programming at OCC (see “Weekly Calendar”).
Provision of pastoral counselling to residents and staff.
Cooperation with volunteers, clergy, and mediators who work with men and their friends/family.
Distribution of clothing and hygiene items donated by volunteers and religious community.
