Every day CIC touches hundred of men, women, boys, and girls in county jails and juvenile facilities.

Our primary mission is to respond to the individual spiritual needs of incarcerated youth and adults in Santa Clara County and present the good news of God’s love and forgiveness. As people respond to the messages of faith, they can experience lives of purpose and hope.

Correctional Institutions Chaplaincy is a non-profit corporation, founded in 1962. CIC operates in cooperation with the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors, Department of Correction, Probation Department, and other government agencies as needed.

Funding for this ministry including our chaplain's salaries, comes through the financial support of churches, individuals, and Santa Clara County.
