FOCUS Reentry is reaching out to churches and people in the community as we expand our program. We have an increasing need for mentors as ex-offenders from Boulder County Jail seek support to get their lives on a new path to refrain from returning to jail. The community of adults which we serve often struggle with re-entry and need a mentor’s guidance to get through this difficult time. The mentoring relationships improve lives by developing skills and positive social networks that empower people to be self-sufficient.
Groups and individuals are discovering that FOCUS Reentry offers them a great opportunity to bring their expertise and passion to create encouraging influences for ex-offenders. One mentor expressed that, “the training is of as much help to me in my daily interactions as it is when I am working as a mentor.”
Although FOCUS Reentry is not a religious organization, many faith communities find that serving people who are reentering society and looking for resources to guide them to a new future align with their values.
As we constantly seek new mentors to serve the ever growing need from ex-offenders, FOCUS Reentry is also actively in search of new applicants for our board. As terms end and we seek to expand the board we want the community to be fully represented. We are particularly looking for board members from Longmont and members with experience in building donor support or committees. People who want to learn more about opportunities to serve on our board, become a mentor, or would like to schedule a presentation should contact our office at 720-304-6446 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our staff or board president will contact you to answer questions and provide information on the endless opportunities to support FOCUS Reentry.
