Hospice in American Prisons January 30

Nationally, about 3,300 men and women die in American prisons each year. A decade ago, most died alone and in pain. Today, thanks to the creative leadership of a few prison wardens and superintendents, there are seventy five active hospice programs in this country.

They believe the provision of hospice care for dying inmates transforms lives: the life of the dying inmate and the life of the inmate caregiver.

Find out how during a special program January 30th at 5 pm at the Community Christian Church in Kansas City, MO.

Serving Life, a documentary about the hospice program at Angolo Penitentiary in Louisiana, will be shown followed by discussion and review of a traveling photo exhibit about the program.
