The intentional engagement of another for impact or influence will not only bring about a change within a life, it will cause their sphere of influence to be effected, and in fact change you! A change within for a far greater purpose. A metamorphosis of life... cause & effect.
Our goal is to see lives transformed for Kingdom purpose. Through intentional efforts aligned with the Word of God we faciliate change for the purpose of holy transformation.
At the heart of Called to Change (C2C) is our Prison Ministry. Why? Because God said so. It really is that simple. Our founder, Chandra Adams was invited to a MBM Weekend of Excitement, (ok, required by the New Life School of Ministry) and despite her fears and perceived limitations, God showed up and lives were changed.
Today we operate much the same, extending an invitation to "come & see" not only what we do, but if this mission field is for you.
You've heard the saying, "Dress for Success", well our belief is there is much to be said about this theory being applied to Returning Citizens.
At C2C we believe that an internal change warrants external evidence. This belief, married to the biblical principal found in Mt. 25:36, "I needed clothes and you clothed me." has lead to the development of Dress 4Change, an arm of our Reentry program.
Through the Dress 4Change initiative we seek to deliver a 2nd tiered experince for each of our female graduates. Each woman will be paired with a C2C volunteer to facilitate their first "Shopping for a Change" experience.
Our goal is to partner in the process of regaining the ability to make choices without experienceing the overwhelm brought on by too many too quickly. Many women who have served a substanial amount of time behind bars have experienced both a change of weight and a loss of time. The impact is an inability to know how best to dress in both a fashionable yet appropriate style, reflecting the new creation that they have become.
Our goal is to facilitate a positive and healty self-image.
