FOCUS on Women’s Re-Entry Wellness
FOCUS Ministries plans to focus on wellness for women reentering society from East Tennessee jails and prisons by launching the FOCUS Ministries Women’s Re-entry Program. They plan to establish the H.O.P.E. Pathway for female ex-offenders. Each letter of the H.O.P.E. Pathway represents essential elements in the re-entry process: Housing will be available to women for 12 months, Opportunity for healing emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually, Personnel will be available such as case managers to serve clients in a way to lead them from initial dependency to full autonomy following program completion, and Empowerment to engage in the workplace.
