Kairos of West Virginia
A little about us
Our Inside Program is well-organized with well-trained volunteer teams of men and women from the communities surrounding an institution. They present an introductory 3-day weekend described as a short course in Christianity. This inter-denominational team of volunteers — both clergy and laypersons — works in cooperation with the Chaplain who carefully selects up to 42 inmate leaders to attend. A well-organized follow-up is part of this program.
We currently operate in 6 prisons: Mt. Olive, Huttonsville, Lakin, St. Mary’s, Northern and Stevens Correctional Centers. More than 3,000 incarcerated men and women have been introduced to Kairos since its inception in February 2000. The current number of volunteers exceeds 200 per year.
