Ball The Magic Valley Chaplains have been involved in helping inmates for the last 20 years. We offer our aftercare mentor/housing program. The men’s Risen House can hold 14, the Lazarus House holds 10, the women’s Serenity House can hold 10. We accept qualified inmates who have a deep desire to change. We don’t take sexual offenders or extremely angry, violent, or unstable personalities. We encourage applicants to apply for Department of Corrections Transitional Funds. We can obtain some funding/help for those without funds, clothing and in need of food.


The Magic Valley Aftercare Ministry is designed for recovering drug users exiting from jail, prison or in serious treatment programs. We offer a Christian approach to recovery studies, safe and drug free housing, life plan assistance, job seeking and support groups. Our houses are in Jerome or Twin Falls, Idaho, where various kinds of jobs are available.


Our house managers help with transitions, drug testing, emotional support, accountability, Bible Studies, 12 step groups, and maintenance of a safe and drug free environments. Non-Christians are welcome if they will set up a recovery plan, work their plan and abide by the house rules. All residents are required to find jobs, pay rent, help in house chores and follow the house rules. With God’s help and cooperation with Him and by applying His principles or truth, we expect our residents to be transformed and make new lives for themselves.
