KO #1 WEEKEND - OCTOBER 19-21, 2018

  We are excited with our plans to hold

Delaware's very first Kairos Outside Weekend!


It will be held at Virden Retreat Center in Lewes.

[Scroll below for more details.]

Volunteers are still needed--there's still time to join our team.

Team Application

Kairos Outside is a special weekend retreat designed to support the female loved ones of men and women who are or have been incarcerated. Families of the imprisoned "do time" right along with their loved ones and are frequently shunned by society and even their own families.

In a safe environment with loving people, women interact with other women who are in similar situations and learn how to form small groups to support and give them strength for the many challenges they face. 

For information about joining our KO team or, if you are affected by someone incarcerated and have an interest in attending a KO Weekend, please contact Laurie Lipsey or Mary Thomson.
