Abe Brown Ministries creates an environment where ex-offenders who are motivated and committed to changing their lives can do so.

The Transitional Living Program (TLP) through Abe Brown Ministries (ABM) is a 12-month program established to provide the ex-offender with a safe residence, afford him the opportunity to attain employment, assist him in re-acclimating to society, and disciple him to be accountable and productive in mainstream living. For more information regarding the Transitional Living Program, please contact the ABM staff at 813-247-3285 or click here.

Meet Michael

MikeAt 53 years old, Michael came to Abe Brown Ministries a broken and defeated man. Abe Brown Ministries’ Transitional Living Program helped him learn how to control his anger and deal with stressful situations without returning to drugs or crime. He had a support group and a life coach who he could call at any time to address any need or struggle. “The structure of the ministry has taught me how to be a better man, father and leader,” said Michael.

The 2015 TLP graduate has plans of continuing his education in pursuit of a degree so that he can expand his mentorship role with TLP residents. “The Ready4Work-Hillsborough program prepared me to succeed in the workplace and gave me an opportunity for full-time employment.I still have a lot to accomplish but with the help of Abe Brown Ministries and Ready4Work-Hillsborough, I know that all things are possible.”
