Kairos Core Programs Active in Arizona
Kairos Inside for Incarcerated Men and Women
The Kairos Inside program strategy brings positive and negative leaders of the institution together for a 3½-day Weekend of carefully coordinated talks, discussions, chapel meditations, and music led by a same-gender team of volunteers. The “Heart of Kairos” is to build the Christian community inside the institution where the Kairos Community prays and fellowships together on a regular basis. This is called “Prayer-and-Share” Groups and meets weekly, also each month the free-world Kairos community returns for a “Reunion” of the entire Kairos community.
Kairos Outside for Women of the Incarcerated
Kairos Outside, as the name implies, is conducted outside the walls of correctional institutions. Kairos Outside is a special weekend retreat designed to support the female loved ones of the men and women who are or have been incarcerated. Families of the incarcerated “do time” right along with their loved ones. In a safe environment with loving people, women interact with women who are in similar situations and learn to form small groups to give them strength for the challenges they face.
