Inmate help center to be dedicated Sunday

A new faith-based program aimed at helping former jail inmates make the transition to life on the outside will be dedicated this weekend. Covenant House, a ministry of New Hope Baptist Church on County Line Road, opened in May. The church, which formed a separate corporation to oversee the ministry, also has partnered with other community agencies in Hernando and Pasco counties. The 18-month residential program offers formerly incarcerated men instruction in job skills and character development. The group's next goal is to offer a women's program in Pasco County. The service is set for 3 p.m. Sunday at First Baptist Church, 420 Howell Ave. A tour of the house will follow. For information, call 1-888-582-4800.
