After Care

Second Chance REEntry Network (SCREEN)

SCREEN is offered to participants in week three of the seven-week Life Skils program to prepare them for life outside the walls of their facility as ex-offenders.

SpiruallifeEx-offenders face many difficulties when they leave jail or prison to re-enter society. The SCREEN program is a community-wide project where partners, staff and trained volunteers meet with ex-offenders regularly to pursue job readiness, job placement and housing.

SCREEN was initiated by Safer Communities Ministry in April 2006 in association with the Governor’s Crime Commission to assist ex-offenders to become productive, law-abiding citizens.

GraduationSince then, SCREEN has become a community wide project with 28 partner organizations including: churches, ministries, government agencies, community service providers and volunteers.

The SCREEN team works together to help ex-offenders set and reach goals for employment, education, social services, substance abuse, finances, spiritual growth, and relationships. Crucial life areas for successful re-entry are housing and employment.

This team approach of concerned citizens and active participants from all sectors of a community ministers to the person in all life areas. The result is to make neighborhoods safer, change lives and protect taxpayer resources.
