Adjusting and finding a sense of normal can be challenging after being incarcerated. Hope for Prisoners understands that and offers a wide range of services and access to resources to help you or a loved one make the transition and successfully reenter the community as a contributing member.
To become a client, you…
Hope for Prisoners recognizes the critical needs that must be met in order for a former offender to successfully rejoin society and sustain that success: Employment, housing, transportation and family reunification. In partnership with agencies and organizations in our community, we provide resources to help meet the needs of our clients.
We also provide access to training programs ranging from basic computer skills to fundamental personal finance and leadership. These training opportunities are available to all clients.
Each client is offered the opportunity to participate in our 18-month mentoring program. A team of trained mentors works with each client to create and help them reach their goals using a variety of tools and techniques. The mentors also help clients to navigate and overcome the challenges they face during the reintegration process.
Nearly 6,000 men and women are released from the Nevada Department of Corrections and about 200 are released from the Clark County Detention Center each day.
At Hope for Prisoners, we see firsthand the desire of people returning home to take advantage of the second chance they’re given to live a transformed life. The challenge is figuring out how to do this. Ask anyone who’s successful in life how they do it and you’ll learn they don’t do it alone. They are on the journey of life with a group of experienced and trusted people to help them. That’s what mentoring is all about.
