Joy Care Center was founded in 1993 to facilitate ministry to ex-offenders upon their release from jail/prison by strengthening them spiritually and improving their practical skills, with the ultimate goal of seeing them become contributing members of their family, church, and the BIoomington-Normal community. 9 week course of 12 classes open to people who are unemployed, under-employed, and hard to employ due to past life stories.

Curriculum provides tools to make students the candidates employers are looking to hire. Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
