Mission Statement

To Assist men and women incarcerated in jail by connecting them to available outside resources and programs prior to their release. We provide 'critical thinking' education to make vital lifestyle changes along with awareness of choices available. We also offer spiritual guidance through our trained mentors and pen pals opening a door for Christ to change them from 'the inside out'. Our goal is to reduce recidivism by rebuilding families, strengthening communities and encouraging individual spiritual growth.

Description

We offer assistance to anyone that wants help with Resources (ID, employment, shelters) and Substance Abuse Programs including victims of Human Trafficking. Our Inside Transition Team works with each resident that requests assistance gathering information needed for their individual plan. We work with and assist Pulblic Defenders/Social Workers for proper help to the resident . We provide education through a 5 week course on 'Obstacles and Challenges of Transition'. Focus areas include areas such as 'Criiminal And Addictive Thinking', Temptations, Submt to Authority, Building Trust, Goal Setting. They also choose a Life Scripture for their lives, build a 24-72 plan and decide thier needs prior to release. We provide continuing education and spiritual development through Chriustian based studies focused on Recovery and Transition. We train Spiritual Mentors and Pen Pals so they are available (if desired) by the resident for Spiritual Development. In some cases, we provide temporaary housing in order to help those truly desiring help get to their next destination. In some cases, we assist with Transportation. We coordinate with families for support and communication with Transition. We provide clothing to those in need at time of Release and/or those traveling to other destinations. We provide outside support during transition. If local, connecting them to local churches for continued growth.
