Woman 2 Woman, Prison Ministry

In the Fall of 2013, BPC launched a prison ministry program, Woman 2 Woman, which connects women in our congregation and community with women incarcerated at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility. These women are our neighbors, yet many of them have little to no outside contact. Our visiting program is designed to provide them with much-needed emotional support, encouragement and friendship. We normally have 50 visitors going into BHCF on a monthly basis. During the COVID crisis, we have had to curtail our visits, but we continue to correspond with women.

Please note that in order to become a Woman 2 Woman visitor, you must attend a training session.

For further information about training and our work, please contact Nancy Gernert at nancygernert@gmail.com or 763-0750.
