After years of ministry, Bishop Samuel Cotto was led to read Zechariah 9:12. The phrase, “Prisoners of Hope” caught his attention and he was impressed with an urgency to take God’s presence, God’s Word, and His Power into the prison systems and community.

Upon the Lord’s direction, he founded Casa Hope Inc. and Prisoners of Hope Intl. after recruiting and training a ministry team.

They began reaching out to the incarcerated population in Florida and those who have made poor life choices. Together, the team opened a transition home for men, based on the seven pillars of ministry.
