Ninety-five percent of incarcerated people will be released from prison back into their communities. They often return home to unemployment and dysfunctional family situations without community support. As a result, many will commit another crime and return to prison. As Ridge Pointers mentor ex-offenders, they help them reconnect with their families, recover from addictions, find jobs and rediscover self-worth. As a result, ex-offenders are overcoming spiritual emptiness and discovering a life-giving relationship with Christ.
