La Crosse County Jail Ministry

COST TO TAX PAYERS

La Crosse Jail Ministry responds to inmate needs and also to the public's need to control jail costs.  The annual tax cost of incarceration exceeds $30,000 per inmate.  Jail Ministry spiritual direction and educational programs help reduce both jail terms and the number of persons returning to jail, thus saving many tax dollars.

Our ministry is supported by the United Way, area Churches, and private gifts.  No public taxes are used to support the La Crosse Jail Ministry.
