Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, ODOC has partnered with Securus Technologies to provide inmates two free phone calls each week while visitation was suspended. With visitation reopening, these free phone calls will continue until April 15. After April 15, phone calls will still be permitted, subject to standard rates and policies.

Volunteer Organization of the Year is Crossings Community Church

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Our Volunteer Organization of the Year is Crossings Community Church in Oklahoma City. Church leaders wanted Joseph Harp Correctional Center inmates to participate in Willow Creek Church’s Global Leadership Summit. So they donated more than $15,000 in audio and video equipment. That includes a projector, screen, and sound system for the visitation room.

Today, Joseph Harp can host church meetings in the room using the equipment and conduct trainings for inmates and staff. Crossings also donated eight 60-inch TVs to the facility’s mental health units, where they broadcast church and other programming.

Over 90 of their volunteers serve at Joseph Harp, providing live worship, prayer, counseling, mentorship, discipleship and other services.

Beyond classes at the prison, those volunteers have welcomed our inmates into the church after they release. The impact has been nothing short of tremendous. We thank Crossings Community Church for making Joseph Harp Correctional Center part of its family.
