Volunteer Opportunities

AfterCare Ministry

The mission of AfterCare of alumni of the Community of St. Dysmas is to assist members who have been released from prison and are working to rebuild their lives.  To that end, we continue to raise them in prayer and help to connect them with a chruch family in the area where they will locate. When appropriate, we also assist them with locating safe housing, meaningful work opportunities with training, and access to area health and social services and other programs.

AfterCare is available for former inmates who have been regular participants in CSD as determined by the Pastor in consultation with volunteers at the site of incarceration.Such AfterCare may include an initial grant, and, if needed a loan to the alumni. AfterCare will be available only during the first year after release. AfterCare is not automatic.
