Created in February 2017, Affirming You coordinates the writing and distribution of Christian birthday cards to the imprisoned. The support for Affirming You is being funded by Nephros Ministries, a Minnesota nonprofit organization 501(c)(3) until it becomes self-sufficient.
Affirming You holds a Memo of Understanding (MOU) with Prison Fellowship Angel Tree to supply a current list of incarcerated people from state and federal prisons.
This MOU also provides guidance in how the cards are written and sent to ensure privacy and honor to the individuals. The guidelines are more stringent than those of state and federal prisons to safeguard both organizations. Affirming You alone oversees and administrates the writing and distribution of prison cards.
