Reentry Reintegration

Teams of 3-7 caring persons covenant with an exmate for up to a year to help that person make a smooth and sure transition back into society. Teams are trained to help them understand where the exmate is coming from and how best to help.

It's a ministry, not a program. If you are interested in the training, contact our office at 1-515-955-3579 or e-mail: DamascusCh@aol.com for the latest dates and locations of our training events.
