Inmate Programs

The MISSION of Inmate Programs and Services is to create partnerships with local community agencies, faith-based, and other professional organizations to:

  • Provide inmates with opportunities for personal growth.
  • Assist jail staff with the management of the inmate population.
  • Prepare inmates for productive re-entry into the community.
  • Reduce recidivism and jail overcrowding.

Using a base of more than 150 community volunteers, Inmate Programs and Services are set up in four distinct areas that include Religious Programming, Recovery Programming, Education Programming, Social Services Programming, and Court Ordered Programs.

Religious Programming

Our goal is to meet the religious needs and requests for each inmate within the confines of the safety and security of our staff and inmates. By partnering with the faith-based community, we accomplish this by offering the following voluntary services to several major religious groups:

  • Worship Services
  • Bible / Topical Religious Studies
  • Literature Distribution (Bibles, Qurans, Studies, etc.)
  • Access to Correspondence Courses
  • Spiritual Mentoring / Chaplain Visits
  • Holiday Specific Services and Events

Chaplaincy Services

Chaplains at the JRLDC perform the following functions:

  • Programs and Services scheduling
  • Death notifications
  • Requests for religious material
  • Request for religious books
  • Requests for secular books
  • Requests for Pastoral Visits
  • Volunteer Services
  • Spiritual Mentoring and guidance

Clergy Visits

Community Clergy members may visit with inmates via the Center’s Video Visitation Department. Pastors will be required to provide a copy of their ordination and a letter from the ministry they represent. Pastors should contact Chaplain Eddie Hill for details on how to arrange these visits. The clergy visits do not count against the inmate as personal visits.

Recovery Programming

Our goal is to offer inmates the opportunity to learn new skills that will enable them to live productive lives apart from their addictions to alcohol and drugs. We accomplish this by offering the following voluntary programs:

  • Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings
  • Narcotics Anonymous Meetings

Jail Diversion and Reentry Program

In partnership with the Horry County Solicitor’s Office, the South Carolina Department of Corrections, the Youthful Offenders Act Intensive Supervision Officers and Life Recovery Solutions, we offer an intensive, residential treatment program for sentenced males suffering from drug and alcohol addictions. This 12-15 month program is designed to divert offenders from prison and place them in treatment within this Center, followed by aftercare treatment and supervision upon successful completion and release.

Education Programming

Our goal is to offer inmates the opportunity to learn new skills that will enable them to live more productive lives and to obtain viable employment upon release. In partnership with the Horry County Adult Education Program, we accomplish this by offering the following voluntary programs:

  • Continuing Education in several areas of study including math, reading and writing skills
  • Work Keys for Career Readiness as part of the Horry County Adult Education Program
  • The opportunity for an inmate to earn their entire GED while incarcerated

Social Services / Court Ordered Programs

Our goal is to offer inmates assistance and guidance to prepare them for release. In partnership with numerous local agencies, we accomplish this by offering the following voluntary programs:

  • Shoreline Behavioral Health Services
  • Veteran’s Administration
  • New Directions
  • Horry County Solicitor’s Office Drug Court Program
  • Horry County Solicitor’s Office Mental Health Court Program
  • Referrals to Aftercare, Transitional Housing and Employment Services

Our goal is to offer the very best service possible to our inmates and the community we represent. Please do not hesitate to contact Chaplain Eddie Hill at 843-915-6908 with any questions or concerns.
