COVID-19 Pandemic Response Grants
Both returning neighbors and families of the incarcerated are experiencing a heightened economic and social vulnerability due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. All In Community recognizes that justice-involved persons need extra support during this time. In response, All In Community is making available special grants to churches that desire to provide greater support for men and women returning from incarceration and/or the families of the incarcerated.
The All In Community COVID-19 Pandemic Grant is available to UM churches specifically seeking to decrease economic, social, and cultural disparities with direct supportive services as part of their local pandemic response.

AIC offers churches and groups two mini-grants for ministry with justice-involved persons. The AlI In Community Grant provides funding for community engagement initiatives with local stakeholders. The HOPE Letters Grant helps groups launch a HOPE Letters group in their congregation or community.

Giving to the All In Community initiative is an investment in another person’s healing. Through your giving, All In Community can offer more training and resourcing opportunities that fuel hope and healing in lives involved in the criminal justice system. Your giving helps create opportunities for a “Saul to become a Paul” and for the man on the side of the road to encounter the Good Samaritan. In addition, your investment helps new expressions of restorative justice and restorative practices ministry take root and flourish under the care of capable and competent lay and clergy ministers.
We are currently accepting donations for the COVID-19 Reentry Kit Challenge. All donations accepted through June 30th will go to purchase hygiene supplies and masks to be given to returning neighbors leaving an Ohio state prison during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Your giving dollars go directly to support:
- Equipping opportunities with ministry experts and practitioners
- Grants for new restorative justice ministry efforts
- Engagement opportunities with new social/restorative justice partners
