Our Program

     Isaiah and Providence Houses provide a safe, structured, drug and alcohol free environment, allowing our residents every opportunity to turn their lives around and become respected productive citizens.

  • Follow all parole and probation stipulations, schedules and requirements

Participation in our program helps our residents:

  • Connect with a local Christian faith community of their choice

  • Establish a relationship with a Mentor/Advocate who will assist them

  • Seek and find employment

  • Secure all proper identification documents

  • Obtain needed medical assistance and social services

  • Register for educational opportunities

  • Re-establish family contact and reunification

Employment:

     Offering the opportunity for employment is an important component of our program and leads to the successful completion of the individual's re-entry plan to self-sufficiency.  Over the years we have established working partnerships with employers who give our residents the opportunity to achieve success in the workplace.   

 

Mentoring:

     We have been blessed with many good volunteer mentors who have been very important in the lives of our residents and their rehabilitation process.

 

Faith Connection:

     Without a strong faith based connection  and Church affiliation, along with participation in Religious and Bible Study programs, it is very difficult for someone coming out of the prison system to achieve true freedom in the real world.  Our residents are encouraged to connect with and attend a local parish/Church located in the local neighborhood.

Family Reunification:

     Many of our residents have alienated themselves from family members.  For those who wish to reconcile with family, their mentor will assist by contacting members of the resident's family and seek approval for the reconciliation effort.  With approval, the resident meets with family members facilitated by his mentor.  The goal of reconciliation is not only to bring them together, but to relieve the stress of behaviors that existed before incarceration. Certainly having a strong family relationship will make the process of transition less stressful.
