“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:14-15
As the close of 2022 speeds toward us, we are reminded of the incredible work that our SUSA partners accomplish on an annual basis by being the feet and hands of Jesus. Whether it be inside the walls of a prison or the steps and stages that occur after release, we have witnessed countless lives saved, numerous people redeemed, and hope restored for populations that surely thought there would be no future outside the one they had previously.
Yet, here we are, hearing the stories of transformation in their darkest times, seeing the positive results coming from the gracious and persistent people who work tirelessly to help them, and feeling humbly grateful to walk alongside all of them during this season of their mission.
Our mission is to bring grace and redemption through Christ to Prisoners, Women in Recovery, and Military Veterans. We support a network of exceptional partner organizations with funding and other management resources to create, enhance and expand high-quality, evidence-based, transformational programs. As you may know, each year our grant opportunity process allows organizations who meet our qualifications to apply, with the intention we can support even more fine organizations nationally. While many of our partners will continue to be funded again this year, we will also be moving some of our former partners into what we call “Legacy Partners”. This means they will continue to receive guidance, consulting, and advisory support from SUSA and our family of services.
After careful consideration and vetting, we will be welcoming the following newest partners to our SUSA mix in 2023, by providing funding and support services such as mentoring, marketing training, legal guidance, and board development. Please join us in celebrating and supporting our newest funded partners.
