But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

1 John 1:9

Saturday Lunch

Every second Saturday from 11am-1pm we host a open lunch. Bring yourself and anyone else who'd like to hang out with us for food and fellowship. We provide the meat and drinks. We only ask that you bring a small side. During the November and December lunches we will have huge parties. So come hang out for just lunch. 

Helping People with a Past realize their FUTURE!

One of the ways we believe we can help men and women realize their future is by opening up transitional housing. I struggle with the name halfway house because most of what is wrong with these type of houses is that they only address half the problem. Most state houses will give them plenty of practical help such as job searching, transportation, food, but zero or little spiritual guidance. On the other side most christian houses will beat them over the head with the spiritual but little practical. Both ways turn out unbalanced individuals. Here at Forgiven Felons we want to provide an atmosphere that is conducive to spiritual and practical growth. We offer bible studies and Christ centered programs to promote spiritual growth as well as provide the necessary tools for job searching.

Our goal is to provide each resident with the tools they need to successfully transition from one lifestyle to another. Whether you are coming from jail, prison, rehab, or off the streets, if you want to change your ways and become a productive citizen, father, husband, and businessman, this is a great place to start.


At Forgiven Felons we will address each need the resident has and began to help them meet everyone of them. We provide assistance in job search by showing each resident how to utilize the internet, temp agencies, and training classes. Even if you've lost everything we can help get you some clothes, food, and a great sober/clean environment to start over in life. 

We offer a clean, and sober atmosphere where one can successfully transition from his old ways, to his new ways. We offer lots of help along the way including mandatory classes, church attendance, recovery classes, bible studies, and accountability to help keep everyone headed in the right direction. We are located on the DART bus routes and are a short distance from DART Rail. Please contact us with any questions you might have.

Our transitional house ministry is located at 9722-24 Summerwood Cir, Dallas, TX 75243. Download the intro letter, application, and financial obligation forms to find more information of pricing. 

Bible Study
Weekly Bible studies are held to promote spiritual growth and cover a variety of topics. Every Sunday morning at 8:15 Jay Dan leads the men in a bible study. This bible study is open to the public and is held at 9724 Summerwood Cir, Dallas, TX. Breakfast is provided so come hungry for the Word and food. Hope to see you there. 

Recovery Class
Recovery is one of the most important parts of re-entering society. If you're not fully recovered from the things that landed you in prison then you'll most likely go back. Some addictions are different like pride, people pleasing, anxiety, etc, but these need recovery as well. Regeneration at Watermark Church in Dallas is the only place that addresses ALL addictions. Whether you live at the house with us or not we invite you to join us at ReGeneration on Monday nights at 6:30pm.
