How We Help

Our inside transition team works with each resident who requests assistance, gathering information needed for their individual plan. We work with and assist public defenders and social workers as well.

 

We provide a five-week educational experience inside the jail, entitled “Obstacles and Challenges in Transition.” Topics include: criminal and addictive behavior, submission to authority, building trust, and setting goals. The participant will actually draft a 24/72-hour plan, designed to keep them on track and focused, once they are released.

 

We provide continuing education and spiritual development through Christian-based studies focused on recovery and transition.

 

We train spiritual mentors and pen pals to be available to the resident (if so desired) for spiritual growth.

 

We communicate and coordinate with families for support during the transition period.

We provide clothing to those in need at the time of release from jail.

 

We provide outside support during transition. If a person is local, we will connect them with local resources such as a faith community and recovery programs for continued growth.

To assist and prepare men and women incarcerated in jail, no matter their personal religious beliefs, make a successful transition back into local communities.

 

Our goal is to reduce recidivism by encouraging personal growth, rebuilding families, and strengthening communities.
