Volunteer Orientation/Community Member Training
When criminal offenses occur in a community it affects every person who resides in the community. Our traditional justice system leaves the community voice unheard, your presence unacknowledged and the ripple effect of criminal action unexpressed to each offender.

LCJP Community Re-Entry Program
Program BasicsThe LCJP community re-entry program is a circle process designed to provide support and accountability for persons re-entering the community from a criminal detention facility. Volunteer participants provide insight and options in six life areas: Employment, Family/Marital, Associates/Social Interaction, Substance Abuse, Community Functioning, and Personal/Emotional with weekly contract items in at least one of these areas.
ParticipantsThe core member is the offender who was released from detention or prison and is reentering the area. Community members may be comprised of anyone with a particular stake in the community who successfully complete training requirements and agree to follow the outlined duties of a community member. The participants remain the same for the duration of the process so that relationships can develop and grow.
Duration of the ProcessThe community circle meets for the duration of parole contract or up to one year. The group determines how often they meet within that time frame and changes it as needed though they begin with a weekly meeting for at lest one hour in length. The average commitment is for one year.
