Who We Are
AFS Family Skills Institute and AFS Publishing Company - both divisions of Jubilee Enterprises -- were founded by Pastors James V. Potter, Ph.D, and Paula M. Potter, MA, in Hawaii in 1987 and moved to California in 1996 focusing on the 'at-risk' families and individuals, struggling with addictions, codependency, family abuse and violence and other life-controlling problems.
Our vision is to help carry out the ministry of Isaiah 61:1,2 and Isaiah 61:1-3
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
3 To console those who mourn in Zion, <! International Network of Prison Ministries Code starts here >
