Over 10,000 ex-prisoners are released from America’s state and federal prisons every week and arrive on the doorsteps of our nation’s communities. More than 650,000 ex-offenders are released from prison every year, and studies show that approximately two-thirds will likely be rearrested within three years of their release.
“We know from long experience that if they can’t find work, or a home, or help, they are much more likely to commit more crimes and return to prison…. America is the land of the second chance, and when the gates of the prison open, the path ahead should lead to a better life.” –President George W. Bush, 2004 State of the Union Address
As a community, we can decide to be proactive and be a part of the solution to help these men transition back into our community safely and successfully, or we can do nothing.
Inside Out Recovery is uniquely positioned to assist these men with their successful transition back into our community.
With your help, the men who come to Inside Out Recovery will find that we are here to give them the opportunity, guidance and direction to be able to make permanent, positive changes in their life and never have to return to prison.
We are housed in a former nursing home on Hendrix Street. Our building has 31,000 square feet, sitting on four and one half acres on the edge of town.
Our mission at Inside Out Recovery is to help educate, train and motivate each of our residents to find a positive, lasting solution to his problems.
We provide a structured, supervised, Christ-centered environment with counseling, job placement, and other services that help our residents gradually rebuild their ties to our community and to find meaningful work, housing, drug and/or alcohol abuse treatment, and community support.
Our jails and prisons are full of men and women who have made mistakes and have no desire to change.
However, there are a few who have the desire, willingness and ability to change and not return to a life of destructive habits.
We are here to give them the opportunity, guidance and direction to be able to make the next right choice.
These men are going to be released into our communities whether we are here or not.
Lets do our part in helping them transition well.
Read Matthew 25:42-45
