Open Arms Transitional Care (OATC)

Open Arms Transitional Care is a collaboration of Bay area prison ministries and faith-based organizations engaged in developing resource networks that enable inmates to successfully transition from incarceration to community living. This transition begins prior to the individual’s release. It is an intricate process, having many different routes that must be pursued simultaneously in order to successfully complete the transition. Essentially, it takes a wholistic approach to support and meet the inmates in their areas of need. The initial route and steps taken will largely determine the ease and success of the transition.

Our History

Open Arms Transitional Care was founded in 2009 by members of the Well church in Dublin, CA who had been active in prison ministry in local jails and several state prisons. There always seemed to be that feeling of unfinished business and sadness as many of us observed so many returning to jail or prison for lack of sufficient support after release. Recidivism continued to rise and we could no longer stand by and watch as even our brothers and sisters in Christ struggled to make the transition back into society and the local church. So far, we have succeeded in calling several local churches in the San Francisco Bay area to co-labor. Currently, we have five Bay area churches actively participating in building a transitional care network.

Our Mission

To see ex-offenders transitioned from confinement into the freedom of God’s promises.

Our Values

Transition is not a change of address; it’s a change of heart, mind and spirit.

Open Arms Transitional Care (OATC) - What We Do

1. To maintain a resource book and network, identifying programs and ministries available in the greater Bay area. These resources would be used in developing the transition plan for each individual.

2. To assist in the transition of ex-offenders, engaging with each individual to develop a transition plan to meet each person’s unique needs.

3. To stand in the gap connecting the individual to the Person of Jesus Christ and His body of believers bringing healing through the practical application of the Word of God; and

4. To encourage restoration of relationships in the family, society and the work place.
