Did you recently get released by IDOC or have a loved one...

hmmm...everyone who works for this organization has been there. Been behind that defendants table for different reasons, one being substances. But we do have an employee who is certified thru the state as a peer recovery specialist with a substance abuse endorsement. We also have one who has a degree in human services. We will be ATR certified (hopefully) in the next couple of months. We also have a team who do have counseling degrees, which help our organization. We make sure we have those who have the degrees and certifications help with the things they need too. The remaining people help place in jobs, housing. Get people food and other necessities. We welcome you to reach out to us privately on facebook for more information...change4hope  (Apr 15, 2013 | post #5)

We are a group that serves those who are recently released by the IDOC and those families who have loved ones who are currently in IDOC. We strive to provide a safe environment that they can seek support from others who are in the same position and those who can help. How do we help those who have substance abuse issues? We will help them get clean, stay clean then move forward. Our program is a 9 month individual and group based recovery program that focuses on impulse control, learning from mistakes, forgiving oneself and then moving forward by going to school/work, gaining good relationship, and other positive life decisions. How do we help those released? We help provide a safe support group for those who are released from IDOC. We give them the tools to allow them to be productive and law abiding citizens. We try to help with job placement, housing, education plans, church homes, and other placements and services in the community that allow them to be productive members of society. Our goal is for the offender never to offend again. What we do for families? When your loved ones becomes a part of IDOC there are arrange of emotions and questions. We provide families support and peace that they are not alone. We provide a safe, supportive place in which they can help other families with their experiences How we support ourselves?
