What We Do
MENTORS AND FACILITATORS ASSIST INCARCERATED WOMEN AND EX-OFFENDERS BY:
- Coaching them in Christian principles as a foundation for living. Showing them how to be an OVERCOMER (Opportunity, Vision, Equipped, Responsibility, Commitment, Order, Maturity, Excellence, Resiliency) and the importance of making a CHANGE (Courage, Hope, Ask God, No to Negativity, Goals, Excellence).
- Introducing CMAT participants to community and faith-based support services and leisure activities.
- Assisting ex-offenders with job interviewing skills, helping with resume writing, and identifying job vacancies.
- Pointing them to resources such as clothing and food banks, housing assistance, physical and mental health services, job training, transportation assistance, etc.
- Providing guidance/steps for securing identification papers and other necessary documents (for example, driver’s licenses) before leaving prison or shortly after gaining their freedom.
- Teaching them to develop independent living skills such as balancing budgets, goal-setting, and bridging relational gaps before transitioning from prison.
The Holy Bible is the main reference book; however, other books and pamphlets will be used as needed.
