Detention Center Partnership
MPC’s mission focus for September to assist inmates who are newly released from the Detention Center. Men and women are often released without an ID, in need of transportation to treatment programs and AA/NA meetings, food, and/or a short-term motel stay. And they may be released in summer clothes during the wintertime!
MPC pairs up with ACTC and Evan Darling at the detention center to help identify & meet the needs of about to be released inmates.
The whole idea is to offer compassionate support where it’s really needed, and to thereby lessen the chance of recidivism, which is very difficult to measure.
“People make mistakes. They’re still people.” (James Beicker Colorado sheriff) And, we could add, “They are God’s people, too.”
