I’m nervous about interacting with law enforcement. What does “Building Bridges with Law Enforcement” session involve?
This session is designed to foster a safe, respectful dialogue between you and representatives of law enforcement agencies. It’s an opportunity to humanize the badge, understand the challenges officers face, and share your own experiences. The aim is to cultivate trust and mutual understanding.
What can I expect to achieve by participating in Partners in Hope?
Our ultimate goal is to help you achieve maturity in your faith and interpersonal skills, contribute positively to your community, attain sustainable employment, secure, stable housing, break free from addictions, and establish positive family relationships.
Does my parole officer need to approve my participation?
While it’s not required for your parole officer to approve your participation in Partners in Hope, we believe it’s beneficial to have their support. This can help ensure that your participation aligns with any conditions of your parole and can provide an additional layer of accountability and encouragement.
Is Partners in Hope a program?
No, we are not a program as programs have end dates. We will walk with you by your side as long as it takes, because we understand that reintegration takes time. It is going to be difficult. There are going to be days when you don’t know what to do, and those days may be 10 years from now. Whenever those days come, we will be here. We will be here as long as you need us.
