The NC Re-entry and Aftercare Project is a pilot project of
Prison Fellowship Ministries which focuses on two aspects of
1) Preparing prisoners and families for release from prison
2) Assisting ex-prisoners and families adjust to "life on the
Programs of the NC Re-entry and Aftercare Project include:
1) A 40-hour Re-entry Life Plan Seminar, which covers basic
life skills (employment search skills, budgeting skills,
self-esteem, etc.). This seminar is used both in prisons
and with newly-released prisoners and family members. 2) Partnering (mentoring), which pairs prisoners, ex-prisoners,
or family members with a trained PF Volunteer Partner. A
Partner is first of all a friend who cares. They coach,
encourage, tutor, guide, and help in many ways. Their purpose
is to assist the person in becoming self-sufficient, and in
setting and reaching goals that will lead to a productive life in
family, church, and community.
3) Support groups, which are weekly meetings of ex-prisoners or
family members that allow for participants and trained volunteers
to share, encourage, network, and find strength. Support groups
specialize in one type of client (ex-prisoner or family member).
4) A community resource database is provided with toll-free access
to information about resources in each county of North Carolina
that might be useful to prisoners and ex-prisoners needing some
assistance in their release (shelters, clothing, etc.), and to
family members who have a loved one in prison.
