ROD Ministries is proud to be a part of North Texas Giving Day. On Thursday, September 22, 2016 from 6 am to 12 am, please consider making your donation through North Texas Giving Day and your donation to ROD Ministries will be multiplied!
Donations go towards things like:
Aftercare Houses: Mortgage, Bills, Repairs, Maintenance *Our men contribute to the house bills to encourage and teach money management and financial responsibility. Often, houses are self-sustaining, allowing extra funds to help us purchase much needed new Aftercare Homes. New business suits are given for men graduating Aftercare.
Aftercare Graduation New Suit: Men graduating from the Aftercare program get to go pick out a brand new business suit as our gift to them for all their hard work. It is an incredibly fun part of what we do!
Discipleship Books & Materials: Three levels of intensive studies taken into area prisons.
Graduation Ceremonies: Graduations are a big deal at ROD! Many men have never graduated from something before.
Documents: Many times men don’t have an ID, social security card, birth certificate, or other important government documents. Getting these in order is an important part of moving into a responsible way of living. We help them acquire these documents. Sometimes it means travel to another city or state.
Welcome Backpacks: Often men have nothing but the clothes on their backs when they leave prison. We provide a clean towel, toiletries, bus passes, etc.
Case Management & Follow Up: Keeping up with 1,000+ men can be a lot of work!
New Initiatives: End the Trend is our prevention program that targets at risk teens and young men. Currently, this program is in a pilot stage due to funding. Our prayer is to fully launch by year end. There are young men on a wait list!
