CHAPLAIN CONTACT INFORMATION
FOR
REGIONAL CORRECTIONAL CENTERS,
GROUP HOMES, JUVENILE FACILITIES
AND THE
N.D. STATE PENITENTIARIES

If you wish to contact the Chaplain at the following Correctional Centers, Group Homes, Juvenile Facilities, or Prisons you may use the following addresses and phone numbers. Please remember that in some cases (especially in county jails), that these men and women are volunteers who receive no compensation for their work in ministering God's Word. Some are ordained ministers; others are lay-chaplains who have answered God's call to help those who are incarcerated, but are otherwise employed full time in other occupations in order to earn a living. Thusly, they may not be available at all times to assist you, and your patience in contacting them is greatly appreciated.
