We are a group of passionate disciples of Christ pursuing the goal of meeting the needs of our incarcerated brothers and sisters before and after release in order to assist in transition back into community, the local church and family. We represent several local churches and our commonality is the love we have for Jesus and for those He brings our way.

After years of visiting those in prison and jail we determined in our hearts to do something for the many being released back into society without support. The task was daunting, but we knew that we could at least love one by one and meet the needs as we were able for housing, clothing, food, employment, and reconciliation. It was at that time that Open Arms Transitional Care was birthed.

We continue to network and partner with other ministries and organizations to meet the needs of believers leaving supervision and transitioning back into the SFO Bay area and throughout California.


This organization and ministry is birthed from the heart of God. It is meant to support incarcerated Christians and help them transition back into society. Our goal is to give you the support you need and connect you to the right resources so that you never have to go back inside.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help Christian Parolees successfully transition back into society. Our core way of doing this is through mentorship and discipleship. We focus on the practical and the spiritual as well


1. To maintain a resource book and network, identifying programs and ministries available in the greater Bay area. These resources would be used in developing the transition plan for each individual.

2. To assist in the transition of ex-offenders, engaging with each individual to develop a transition plan to meet each person’s unique needs.

3. To stand in the gap connecting the individual to the Person of Jesus Christ and His body of believers bringing healing through the practical application of the Word of God; and

4. To encourage restoration of relationships in the family, society and the workplace.
