|About Daylight Ministries Home
Daylight Ministries, a non-profit
transitional facility for homeless, disadvantaged, and
recently-released female prisoners, has made notable inroads toward
improvement of community service for the city of Jackson.
by Mrs. Myra Ramsey, and sponsored by the Amazing Inst. Church of God in
Christ, Daylight Ministries has sought to offer the critical
undergirding to women (especially those recently released from
incarceration) as they seek jobs and logistical support, that
ultimately mainstream them into acceptable, social and legal norms.
As highlighted by the Metro State section of the Clarion Ledger,
June 10, 2002, Daylight has been quite instrumental in reversing the
direction of women who recognize that they were "out of control" and
desire to change.
Daylight solicits your consideration
to support us to help this ministry
maintain a clean and pleasantly appointed home for deserving women
who want to learn the value of contributing to the city of Jackson,
rather than depleting its resources.
Ministry is an aftercare program for women ex-prisoners and those
recovering from substance abuse.
We offer safe, secure transitional housing to this homeless
population, providing daily counseling in spiritual and life skills,
self-esteem, job skills and maximum independence.
Daylight Ministries provides
temporary shelter for the women who are in need or in transit from
other aftercare programs. A safe-haven is provided with daily
counseling, weekly support group meetings and life skills for growth
and development. This program was developed to reinforce those
individuals who have low self-esteem, for whatever reason, to help
them realize that they can become productive, law-abiding citizens
Our ministry activities are
centered on efforts to sponsor and help women committed to faith in
Christ and provide education, self-esteem and job skills. We
assure that each lady is independent, employed and ready to return
to a positive and fruitful life.
We are open 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, to assist all clients referred to us. Those with
substance abuse history must have completed the 12 step A&D, NA
programs. We would also like to thank our sponsors for all of
their support in making this ministry a success. Our sponsors
