Outreach Reentry Ministry, Inc. provides services to prisoners, ex-offenders and their family members. Our programs provide support to those applicants for the development and implementation of comprehensive and collaborative reentry strategies specifically designed to increase public safety by reducing recidivism.
Outreach Reentry Ministry, Inc. provides reentry services to individuals leaving incarceration (with a focus on individuals identified as being at medium to high risk to recidivism) including AA / NA programs, anger management, support for housing, education, employment and family relationships as well as and mental health treatment linkages, and therapy that addresses criminal thinking patterns.
Outreach Reentry Ministry, Inc. is best accomplished through a phased approach. The three basic phases of successful reentry used by Outreach Reentry Ministry, Inc. are indicated below:
* Preparation: Beginning 6 to 12 months prior to release. Volunteers focus on equipping the prisoners with the skills, education, and resources needed to make a successful transition to the outside world.
* Transitional: When the ex-prisoner leaves the prison gates reentry volunteers make sure he or she has safe housing, food, clothing, and many other key supports. During the early days of release most ex-prisoners need daily encouragement and assistance until the crisis-levels needed are resolved. Then they need continued weekly contact, spiritual guidance, and emotional support for 12 to 24 months as they find employment, begin to rebuild relationships, and adapt to their new life outside of prison.
* Stabilization: Volunteers continue to disciple and assist the ex-prisoner forward establishing consistent personal habits, healthy relationships, spiritual growth, and church commitment. One very important sign of stabilization is when the ex-prisoner become involved in serving others in the community instead of expecting to be served. This phase is our long term extensive aftercare program which is an on going process!!!!!!!!
Recidivism: Every year approximately 700.000
men and women are released from U.S. Prisons. That's the equivalent of about 2,000 ex-prisoners a day returning to communities across the country. Studies show that without intervention, two-thirds of those will return to prison within three years. Prisoners often go back to prison not because they commit a crime, but because they violate parole.
For many prisoners, the months prior to release are a time of intense fear and insecurity. The time of duress is sometimes referred to as
For years decisions were made for them by the Department of Corrections. They were told what to eat, what to wear, where to go, and what to do. Now suddenly the former prisoner must make a myriad of decisions about life in the free world - a place that may no longer feel like home, but more like a foreign country.
The challenge for reentry ministry volunteers is to be prepared to support returning prisoners during their long journey home. This journey actually begins months before they walk out of the prison gates.
The moment ex-prisoners leave the prison gate, they face many critical decisions:
* Where they will live
* Where they will look for a job
* What to eat
* How to pay for these necessities
But this isn't all:
The dire consequences of a felony conviction last far longer than the years spent in prison followed by more time on parole. In addition to those direct punishments:
* lose their right to vote
* can not possess a gun
* offenders are denied licenses for
They are frequently:
* Denied parental rights
* Denied driver's licenses
* Denied student loans
* Denied residency in public housing
Sex offenders are required to:
* register with the local police
* Often are banned from many areas
These are called "Collateral Consequences"

Free at last! I want to first thank God for my release. I also want to thank the Outreach Reentry Ministry staff & volunteers for their daily encouragement and assistance during my incarceration and then upon my release. They offer the Christian Counseling that I needed while I was dealing with the initial crisis-levels in adjusting to the outside world. I wanirt to give a very special thanks to Mr. Chester McKinney and the McKinney family for the special acts of assistance & encouragement!!!!!
