A Day with Dad at Darrington Prison
Our Annual "Day with Dad" at Darrington, with in partnership with local churches and volunteers. Each fall we are allowed by the Warden at Darrington and TDCJ to bring in dozens of kids whose dads are incarcerated at Darrington. We share the love of Christ to these children. It is a time of enormous joy and healing for these children and their dads.
The Southwestern Seminary at Darrington Penitentiary — the engine for new changes in the Texas prison culture.
They each earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biblical Studies. All of them were subsequently transferred to 7 prisons in Texas, in teams ranging from 5-8 men each. They are now serving as the first inmate "Field Ministers" in Texas prison history. The Heart of Texas Foundation is pleased to have been the formative entity in giving birth to the seminary, and we continue to fund its entire operation with private funds.
