Pastor Karen Carlisle pastors the Church of Christ Commissioned Compassion in Columbus, Ohio. She and her church have been the primary source of funding for USN projects. For the past few months, she has been trying to form a collaboration between the City of Columbus and the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction to provide housing for prisoners being released. She has accompanied the USN to Warren Correctional, to Chillicothe, and to the Franklin Corrections Center, and plans to start taking the William Brady Project Band into the prisons to perform when the COVID-19 restrictions lift. If you’re getting out of prison soon, contact Pastor Karen at the address below to see about getting a “start-back” kit, that includes
a few items of clothing, hygiene items, and a little pocket change. Stay peaceful and make all the right moves to get back out here with us if you can!
