- About 450 offenders are released every month from Lancaster County Prison and return to our local communities. In addition, roughly 500 formerly incarcerated persons come back annually to Lancaster County from state prisons.
- Mentoring is an integral part of beginning better lives. Mentors give guidance and demonstrate healthy, trusting relationships in the quest to help offenders navigate the many challenges and opportunities they will face.
- The Lancaster County Re-Entry Management Organization is partnering with Justice & Mercy and Highland Presbyterian Church to offer a new mentoring program, which has been established to facilitate offenders' readjustment to society.
You can demonstrate your own "Faith in Action" by becoming a Community Mentor.
Receive a thorough mentoring education on such topics as:
- Roles and goals of mentors
- Communication skills
- Understanding ex-offenders
- Resources available to help
This is an 8 week training by a skilled instructor, and includes special relevant presentations by experts in their fields.
This program is not church-affiliated - All faiths are welcome.
