Mission Statement

Damascus Way Reentry Center was founded in 1975 by GMAE to serve as a live-in reentry program for men on parole and to work with men who are on probation, waiting trial, or reentering society after completing a primary drug treatment program.

Description

The Center helps men who leave prison ill-equipped for life outside of prison: about 70% of parolees or ex-convicts return to prison. DWREC's residential facility offers Bible class, job placement, introduction to positive support groups, mandated church attendance, counseling, AA meetings, financial workshops, and transitional housing ($186,271). In 1994, of 85 participants in the three-month program, 82 have jobs and only 2 returned to prison.
