PRISON RE-ENTRY PROGRAM
REVIVE, (ReEntry Validating Independence, Vision and Education) a total program where ex-offenders who are released from incarceration facilities in the state of Nevada, have a place where they will be assisted with a variety of services such as: housing, education and employment.
After 20 years of experience assisting and providing counseling, support and services to women who have been released from prison into our community, Dr. Glories Powell introduces a program developed to assist in necessary areas of concern including feeding, clothing, housing, education and employment. (Five Pillar Strategy)
REVIVE, (ReEntry Validating Independence, Vision and Education) a total program where ex-offenders who are released from incarceration facilities here in the Las Vegas area, have a place where they will be assisted with a variety of services. Women who are released from Florence McClure Women’s Correctional Facility, and are in relationship with The Prodigal Project Mentoring Program will be referred to REVIVE for an already assessed area of service needs. Primarily with employment and housing, REVIVE works on a one-on-one, case by case basis with needs that are commonly anticipated for females who are re-engaging with their family and the community.
Employment and self-sustainability is the key that anchors in the success of the REVIVE project. We envision the CODA Institute of Training and the Las Vegas Marketplace as ongoing, defined and available employment opportunities to provide OJT, vocational training, and entrepreneur mentorship. Through these avenues and services, we believe that the successful partnerships with small business owners, and the collaborations with supportive companies will position REVIVE to be a continual support to the women as they transition into their new life.
REVIVE will be the beacon in the search for the provisions and services that will produce measureable outcomes with evidenced based results. For many returning prisoners, the family home provides some assistance. But reunions with families are not always possible—or are only temporary—sometimes due to the dictates of criminal justice or housing policies, or sometimes due to family dynamics. It has been an ongoing observation that our society and community has been plagued with families that have been damaged and thus become dysfunctional.
REVIVE is the seed of hope that lies beneath the root of issues that has stunted the growth of our families.
REVIVE, in conjunction with its community partners will take advantage of the opportunity to invest and assist women and their families in addressing the root.
Revive has the tools capable of repairing the fabric of our community that has been ripped to shreds by poor employment, under education, and emotional trauma through domestic violence, and generational, socio-economic dependence on governmental programs. REVIVE will make this population of serviced females an exciting movement into energizing entrepreneurs, educated mothers and women who are striving for a better life for themselves and a better home for their families.
