Transforming Reentry Services / (Men & Women In Prison Ministries), provides direct comprehensive services to the reentry community, using the First Step Model. Individuals returning to their former communities, often return with limited resources and many needs. Many of the formerly incarcerated individuals make their “first step” by accessing local trusted community or faith-based organizations to acquire basic needs: housing, food, employment etc. The services are delivered using a client centered and culturally competent approach.
