Second Chance Mentoring is an initiative designed to help reduce the chances of adult offenders returning to the criminal justice system by providing a caring positive role model in their life. A supportive, positive role model at this crucial time in their lives can mean all the difference. Examples of some of the services mentors provide are being a friend and enjoying social outings, keep the mentee accountable by taking them to programs they participate in, assist in finances and education and attend group sessions together. The Second Chance Mentoring Program allows us to help 120 adult offenders from Garrett House, Fletcher House and Hope Hall transition back into the community by assigning them mentors. Mentors meet with their mentees for six hours each month and provide support and feedback through individual and groups activities.
Eligibility: Must be an adult offender within 6 months of release from prison returning to the Camden County area.
