Become a mentor:

Re-entry mentorship is so important because the first few hours, days, and weeks after release from incarceration is when ex-prisoners are highly vulnerable and most prone to feeling overwhelmed.

 

These are some important ways reentry mentors benefit newly-released prisoners:

  • Meet them at the gate on release day and help celebrate their freedom

  • Provide transportation to their pre-arranged post-release housing

  • Be there to provide emotional and spiritual support during the transition

  • Help them obtain appropriate clothing and food

  • Take them to church and introduce them to a Bible study group

  • Ensure they get connected with a local substance abuse support group

  • Help them access free or low-cost community resources and services

  • Serve as an accountability partner as the ex-prisoner implements the goals stated in their previously-developed reentry plan
