We Believe…

All children are worthy of love and understanding.

Meet Our Chaplains

We make God visible to the children we serve.

Ministry of Presence Probably the most important aspect of the chaplains' time with the children is what we call “the ministry of presence”. Our chaplains walk the halls; visit the units; play cards, board games, or video games; or watch TV with the youth. The non-anxious presence of our chaplains reassures the teens that their spiritual well-being is being looked after.

Last night ECM hosted a viewing of The Pruitt-Igoe Myth. After, we held a discussion about how housing, poverty, and segregation continue to affect our region and the children we serve in the juvenile justice system. Thanks to all who came!

Sending a "shout out" to the volunteers from Christ Church Cathedral and all who supported them in hosting our April 6 birthday party at the City Detention Center. Chaplain Kevin reports it was a really fun time.

Birthday parties like the one hosted earlier this month by Emmanuel Episcopal Church volunteers is just one way ECM shines the light of God's love into the lives of troubled youth in the Juvenile Justice System. One volunteer who made an effort to engage with the kids wrote, "Watching these kids be kids and trying to realize what their life is like outside of detention is why I think we do what we do."

Last night ECM hosted an event for our Rockwell level donors. These dedicated folks have huge hearts for the children we serve and everyone at ECM is so grateful for their support. This gathering was just a small token of that gratitude. Special thanks to Tom and Emily Guignon for hosting us!
