(ABBA) The Able Body of Believers Alliance is a 501(C) (3) not-for-profit, Faith-based organization that is located in Hempstead, New York. ABBA takes a holistic approach in addressing the needs of men and women in our community. We focus on reuniting men and women with their families in a covenant keeping relationship that naturally combats the negative influence of drugs, crime, violence, gangs and poverty. Biblical principles are the building blocks of all our teaching and they are the foundation for the reason we exist.

Pivotal to ABBA is reaching men and women entangled in the criminal justice system, to reduce the high rate of recidivism. ABBA LEADERSHIP CENTER INC. recognize that in order for ABBA to it reach it objective the combine effort of the entire affected community must be brought to bare if we are to effectively address the crisis of the dysfunctional male. A cross section of community-based and faith-based organizations must form an alliance to work in unison to meet the need, and develop a comprehensive strategy to rebuild the broken lives of men and women in crisis situations; be it jail, homeless shelters, drugs and alcohol program or the average “Joe” aimlessly going through the motion of life.  The bible say, “though one be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken” (Ecclesiastes 4:12 NIV). A broad based partnership alliance of community and faith-based organizations is absolutely essential to the healing and restoration of disenfranchised men and women in the criminal justice system.

Biblical principles are the building blocks of all our teaching
and they are the foundation, for the reason we exist. 

Our Mission

Our Focus

The entire focus of ABBA Leadership is encapsulated in our initiatives inside Nassau County Jail. From our weekly several bible studies to our Sunday morning services. We work diligently to bring hope and restoration to men and women whose lives have been devastated by multi-generational hopelessness and despair. We have come to realize that effective reentry ministry starts from the time of incarceration.
