Correctional Institutions Chaplaincy Serving Santa Clara County
The primary mission of CIC Ministries is to respond to the individual spiritual needs of detained youth and incarcerated adults in Santa Clara County, CA and present the good news of God's love and forgiveness. As people respond to those messages of faith, they can experience lives of purpose and hope.
3,500 men and women are incarcerated in Santa Clara County jails on any day. The average inmate's stay is six months, with some staying 8 - 10 years.
To serve their spiritual needs, CIC Ministries trains teams of volunteers to conduct Bible studies, group classes, worship services, and one-on-one pastoral counseling inside county jails. Join more than 300 volunteers from across the Bay Area who volunteer in jail.
