CMAT Purpose

The program’s primary goals are to reduce recidivism for those who will be released from the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women (MCIW), and to promote positive attitude and actions while program participants are incarcerated.

In addition, we hope to assist in providing safer communities and family stability by providing CMAT participants with the skills and resources to assist with their transition to freedom. The two-fold program model (mentoring and transition skills training) will:

    • show the love of Jesus Christ to inmates and ex-offenders in practical as well as Biblical ways,
    • provide trained mentors to coach and advise on their personal concerns as well as action items for transitioning to freedom,
  • provide life-transformation teachings and survival skills to program participants.
