The Lancaster County RMO, in partnership with Bridge to Community, is launching Successful Returning Citizens Mentoring Support Groups in Lancaster, starting Sept 17, 2014.
These groups are for any returning citizen looking for encouragement, positive role models and information on resources and strategies to help them become successful, productive citizens in the community.
The groups are led by highly successful returning citizens who understand both the challenges of having a criminal record AND the positive pathways to success in overcoming those challenges.
Every Wednesday (starting Sept 17, 2014)
7:00pm – 8:30pm
@ Ebenezer Church
701 North Lime St
Lancaster, PA 17603
(corner of Lime & New)
These groups are based on a highly successful model that started in Harrisburg about 5 years ago. An independent evaluation of these groups found that participants who attended at least 16 weekly sessions have a 96% SUCCESS RATE (only a 4% chance of recidivism/returning to prison) The PA Board of Probation & Parole endorses these groups and has advocated for launching these groups in every county in Pennsylvania. We're delighted to now be offering them in Lancaster.
