M2/W2Back to Agency List
M2/W2 Association is a non-profit serving men and women in BC prisons. Our vision is to reflect Godís restorative and inclusive love within the criminal justice system and wider society.
In obedience to Hebrews 13:3, M2/W2's mission is to minister to prisoners during their incarceration and through our mentorship program journey with them as they transition back into society, helping them to resolve the issues that they face and introducing them to the love of Christ.
Our Prison Mentorship program is at the heart of our ministry. We facilitate one-on-one, Man-to-Man (M2) and Woman-to-Woman (W2) relationships between Christian volunteers and inmates in British Columbia. These relationships provide mentorship, friendship, and personal accountability to the inmate.
- Hidden Treasures Thrift Stores and Employment Empowerment Facility for those in transition.
These stores, located in Abbotsford and Chilliwack, contribute to the overall mission and strategy of M2/W2 by providing opportunities for community volunteerism, the recycling of good items, and work experience for released offenders.
- No One Leaves Alone (NOLA) program is community based. It consists of 4-7 volunteers who become a support group for recent released inmates. The group provides strategic support, friendship and accountability.
- Volunteer training. We will provide the necessary training and get security clearances prior to matching you with an inmate. You will be part of the team bringing Christ’s transformative love locally.
- Community prison escorts.
