The mission of Welcome Home Ministries is to provide holistic faith-based, peer-driven supportive services for women in transition from incarceration into the community on an ongoing basis by renewing lives and restoring families.
Welcome Home, a recognized leader in reentry all the way to the White House and even beyond with international interest being piqued, has not only developed numerous programs to give individuals the opportunity to regain citizenship, return to school, acquire jobs and, most importantly, be reunited with their children but has significantly reduced the national recidivism rate. The rate of women returning to jail after being released nationally is 80%. The women in the Welcome Home program have a rate of only 13% by creating a Christ-centered program offering caring services through case management, referrals to Welcome Home community partners and a peer to peer mentoring model proven to work.
