Hope for Prisoners

Thecrossinglv   -  

Hope for Prisoners encourages and imparts hope into ex-offenders. Hope comes alongside ex-offenders and their families to transform lives and systematically educate society in ways to engage and support them. The program is grounded in the belief that with the proper assistance, ex-offenders returning to the community can overcome the many barriers to successful living that the incarceration experience can create.

What: HOPE for Prisoners is highly vested in the evidence-based practice of using well trained, volunteer mentors to provide the necessary emotional and social support for ex-offenders as they transition to community life. All clients are offered an opportunity to participate in their 18-month mentoring program. “Hopefuls” are assigned a team of mentors to help them set and reach goals and navigate the challenges faced during the reintegration process. Mentoring services are provided for a full year through one-on-one sessions, peer-to-peer contact, and ongoing support groups designed to provide support throughout the process of reintegration. All volunteer mentors complete a thorough screening and interview process and receive ongoing training throughout their time with their program.
