Our History

Augusta RiverGate was birthed out of Augusta Day Aglow, who has been ministering weekly to the women inmates in Columbia County Detention Center since 1984. It was as obvious then as it is today that when many of the women are released from incarceration, and return to their drug addictive environment, they are highly likely to return to incarceration. It has been our prayer for over thirty years now that there would be an alternative environment for the women who are sincere in wanting to transform their lives. It is the mission of Augusta RiverGate to provide this alternative Christ-centered environment.
