Voice of Liberty Costa Rica (VOLCR) is an interdenominational ministry in Costa Rica made up of many churches dedicated to making disciples in the prisons of Costa Rica. VOLCR also works with families on the outside of the prison, assists ex-prisoners with transition to productive participation in the free world, and Calle Blancos Church assists in helping with victims of crime. VOLCR began in San Sebastian prison which is the central processing prison for the entire system. As men await trial and sentencing, they are brought to San Sebastian prison. Many go into other prisons after they are sentenced. Because of this, the church started by VOLCR in San Sebastian has spread throughout the prison system. Approximately 400 of the 1000 inmates in San Sebastian are part of the Christian Church. Other prisons that Voice of Liberty supports are: Buen Pastor (women's prison), Virilla, Reforma, Zurqui (juvenile prison), El Roble, Sandoval, La Leticia, San Carlos and APAC faith-based prison.
