Successful reentry is supported by three community-based values/pillars: 1) Active participation in community events 2) Positive relationship with Community Supervision Officers (mentoring program values a working relationship with Probation and Parole) 3) Active involvement in program activities (workshops, seminars, group counseling, and spiritual enrichment)
Program participants receive community direction and guidance from a mentoring system that includes (1) Program Coordinator and (5) Direct Service Mentors. Potential Mentees are individuals in need of guidance to navigate through what is a difficult re-integration process as a law-abiding citizen, productive community member, and responsible family member. Potential Mentees may have various issues ranging from substance abuse, complex family dynamics, housing, employment, and education that can be effectively addressed through group and one-on-one mentoring services.
“To equip program participants with a comprehensive support structure that will advance positive decision making skills and address the barriers to successful family and community re-integration, thereby reducing recidivism.”
