SToP was formed to assist individuals and congregations addressing any aspect of prison ministry, including ministry inside the walls, re-entry support and advocacy for just sentencing laws. SToP, along with Breaking the Chains Church and Project RETURN assist those wanting to visit incarcerated persons, provides resources for congregations to pursue just sentencing advocacy as well as a variety of re-entry support, including Circles of Support.
