Faith-Based Services & Volunteer Programs

We appreciate the hard work and dedication of our volunteers who serve our inmates and returning citizens. Our volunteers are an invaluable resource to our department as they provide programming that focuses on changing criminal behavior and mindsets which are extremely beneficial to their rehabilitation process.

We recognize the importance of our volunteers having access to the volunteer handbook and application process that will assist you in serving with confidence in our correctional facilities. Listed below are the volunteer handbook and application packets for two (2) types of volunteers.

It is HIGHLY recommended you attend your first-time training or required renewal training at the facility you will be serving. Please contact your facility Chaplain at the email, address and/or phone number listed below for the training dates provided at each of these facilities. Trainings may also be held in Albuquerque.
