You can make a difference

Services and programs offered by Bureau staff can be supplemented by citizen volunteers,
thereby supporting community reentry efforts and promoting institution safety.

When inmates transition from our institutions to half-way houses, they must readjust to life in the community and find employment. Through faith-based and community/neighborhood organization partnerships, volunteers play an important part in making a positive difference in their lives. As mentors, they provide strong guidance to the inmates and help them to promote accountability. You can assist in meeting the needs of the inmate population by providing a variety of services in different skill areas and/or specific types of programs such as:
