The Fairfax Prison Aftercare Ministry is an interdenominational Christian ministry at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center. Administered by Truro Anglican Church, this program involves an eight-week training course, a commitment to meet with an inmate once each week during the last three months of incarceration, and at least six months after their release into the Northern Virginia area. Aftercare ministers (care givers) provide spiritual support to men and women on a one-on-one basis, men with men and women with women. Ministers also provide information and assistance in accessing resources in the community and in locating a faith community to help the released care recipient integrate back into the local community.
