Without our volunteers, we simply wouldn’t be able to do what we do. So much of our core mission is led by those who are willing to give up some of their valuable time to sow back into the community.
Integral to our mission to impact the lives of prisoners and their children are our In-Prison Volunteers. Second Chances SA currently have weekly visitors in the Adelaide Remand Centre, Yatala Labour Prison, Adelaide Pre-Release Centre, Mobilong and Port Lincoln Prison.
In-Prison Volunteers offer help to those who have found themselves in a position where they have lost their freedom, they aren’t paid; they simply believe that when Jesus said to visit prisoners, it was a commission for us to reach out to those who have lost hope.
Our volunteers offer help with banking funds transfers, property storage, communicating with family and lawyers, and importantly, letting prisoners know what programs we have to help their children. Moreover, they are there to listen, pray and build relationship, to encourage them to make positive changes in their lives.

Volunteering in the prisons isn’t a short-term commitment.
