Hannah’s Gift teaches incarcerated mothers to foster a healthy relationship with her child.

Most mothers are the primary caregiver of the home and their absence due to incarceration has a great impact on the stability of their children. The life of Hannah and her son as told in 1 Samuel 1-3 serves as a model for this program. Though Hannah did not raise her son in the traditional sense, her role in his life surely shaped the person he became. Despite parenting from a distance, Hannah gave her child a legacy of faith.

In 2012, Hannah's Gift was launched at the Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women to provide ministry geared toward incarcerated mothers. Similar to Lifeline Global Ministries' Malachi Dads, Hannah's Gift is becoming a thriving ministry bearing much fruit in the lives of incarcerated moms and their children.
