What We Do

We invest the time on the front end to help people be successful in life and at their jobs. We have developed a program, for qualified participants, that not only prepares them for release, but after they are released, helps them get stabilized in the community so they become productive citizens and don’t wind up back in prison.There are several things we do

1.Prescreen them before they are released.
2.Provide a place to live.
3.Put them through our program of rehabilitation and education.
4. Help them find decent jobs
5. Monitor their progress

Pre-Release

2.We explain to group participants how our residential program works and encourage those who are interested to let us know.
3. The candidate fills out and signs comprehensive 26-page application.
4.The candidate undergoes a private interview to evaluate his suitability for the program.
5.If the interview and evaluation is positive, the candidate is eligible for the residential program once released.
6. Candidates are subject to a TB test, HIV/Aids test.

After Release
