What is Aftercare Ministry?
The Aftercare Ministry is to assist the person released from prison or jail to become adjusted to life outside the prison or jail in a constructive way. This ministry is multifaceted and complex because every released person has different needs and economic/family resources.
Typical needs addressed by the JMOC Aftercare Ministry include:
¨ providing transportation for ex-offenders to social service agencies and to job interviews,
¨ helping the recently released inmate apply for a job, find a place to live, or complete forms necessary for securing services from governmental and nongovernmental agencies,
¨ providing for basic necessities, such as food, hygiene products, clothing, and furniture to set up an apartment or room
¨ getting the recently released inmate into a Christian study group and/or church.
Ameen Aswad, the Aftercare Coordinator, has extensive experience working with prison inmates and various social service agencies and churches in the county. He determines the best way the ex-offender can be helped. To gain the assistance, the Aftercare Coordinator may provide some of the service or call on help from a social service agency, a church or group of churches, or volunteers who have indicated that they would give of their time and effort to this ministry.
