Faith has been an important part of Corrections since the very first prisons were established in this country. The types of services religious volunteers provide are so diverse that we try to use some consistent definitions to describe their activities:
The vast majority of our volunteers are religious volunteers and most of them serve by providing opportunities for worship, religious education and spiritual growth. The only locations where religious services are more limited are those where security restrictions limit the number of inmates that can gather together at one time or where the facility has limited space to accommodate the services.
The Oklahoma Department of Corrections is committed to a positive partnership between the agency and its volunteers. This partnership plays a vital role in achieving the department’s mission. Volunteer involvement enhances inmate programs and services, plays an important part in reentry efforts, provides additional resources, and creates opportunities for a greater public understanding of corrections and the challenges we face.
The Oklahoma Department of Corrections cannot use state funds to purchase religious materials. If you would like to make a donation to support faith based activities within the agency or to help with other needs, please click here.
