Angel Tree

Through Prison Fellowship's Angel Tree program, churches are coming alongside families of the incarcerated at Christmastime, and all year long.

A great post from earlier this month about one of the Angel tree sports clinics in Fresno!

Today our VDC neighborhood kids are participating at the 2nd Annual Fresno Angel Tree Football Clinic with our partners at Prison Fellowship! These participants are learning safe and informative football drills facilitated by former NFL Players. Thank you Prison Fellowship for your continued partnership!!

For Shane, Angel Tree means more than giving presents to children with parents behind bars. For him, it’s about helping the community that helped him—both on the inside and out.

Many people in the federal prison system have worked to turn their lives around and simply want to regain the trust of the communities they are returning to, but it’s been nearly impossible for them to get the tools they need.

The Prison Reform and Redemption Act could change that! Learn more in this article our SVP Craig DeRoche co-authored with Rep. Doug Collins.

General information

An estimated 1.7 million children have a mom or dad in prison. The number is huge – but so is the opportunity. Angel Tree is a ministry that reaches out to the children of inmates and their families with the love of Christ. It seeks to transform the lives of these families and to reconcile them to their Heavenly Father and each other. In Matthew 18:5 Jesus said, “Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.” There are children right in your community who are among the most at-risk children in the nation. Angel Tree provides an opportunity to connect with those families and begin ministering to them at Christmas and then continue through a variety of year-round ministry opportunities.
