PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
From Incarceration to Integration
Reentry Housing Programs
Our reentry housing programs provide year-long supportive housing and wrap-around services to the most vulnerable.
Release to Rent houses men who have been incarcerated for ten years or more. The Release to Rent: Veterans program serves veterans with a history of criminal justice involvement.
The FIRST Services department of CJM offers access to a number of resources to clients who have been released from jails/prisons.
Those resources include a backpack filled with hygiene items and basic inner clothing. Bus tickets, vouchers for state ID's and/or birth certificates.

Inside Ministry and Classes
CJM's active volunteer network provides a variety of services to incarcerated individuals in 4 prisons, 10 jails, and one transition center.
These programs include classes (anger management, creative writing, peer support groups and more), prison ministry, and the pen pal program.
Advocacy and Engagement
CJM works to provide information about the criminal justice system and its impact on the community through presentations at schools, churches, and community groups, collaboration with other agencies and groups, and contact with legislators at both the local and state levels.
Vets 4 Pets
Vets 4 Pets is a program for CJM housing clients. The voluntary group meets every week to learn business skills and create goods to sell. Vets 4 Pets makes dog treats, dog toys, and other pet-friendly items to sell at local markets and fairs. Proceeds are distributed amongst group members.
