Who We Are
The mission of Prison Ministries Transitional Assistance Initiative is to provide the incarcerated and soon to be released inmate an opportunity to step out into the community on a sound spiritual and biblical foundation. We will try to assist the inmate and his or her family with attaining the correct information needed for a smooth transition back into their communities, with the primary goal of reducing recidivism and educating community awareness.
Our goal is to inform our visitors and those inmates we work closely with on a case by case basis on their options for re-entering there communities on sound biblical principles. Though we currently do not have the funding to assist financially we can help the families and inmates find reliable resources within there communities or on a state or federal level to provide the much needed assistance to make a smooth transition back into society.
Types Of Activity
Our current activities include research of the DOC System in the State of Massachusetts as it pertains to Sex Offender Re-Entry and what steps are taken to reduce recidivism and try to reach out to the inmates via a printed newsletter and a welcome package, introducing our services to the inmate population in and around the state.
Most of the inmates that we work with are in the state of Massachusetts, but we do on occasions work with inmates outside of our region.
Our magazine (newsletter)We distribute a printed Newsletter and Welcome Package to inmates without cost and it is sent out monthly as finances permit. We also have a Blog where people can join and view our newsletter online or we can send the newsletter to there email address on a monthly basis. The newsletter varies in length.
