His Way addresses the spiritual, physical, and mental needs of the ex-offender.
Why was His Way Ministries Needed?
Statistics indicate that over 60& of the inmates released or place on probation eventually are re-arrested for another offense within three years. It was discovered that many repeat offenders were not provided a pathway that deterred them from the use of criminal acts as a survival mechanism. In many cases, the ex-offenders, unable to adjust to life on the outside, commit more crime merely to return to prison. The difficulty facing ex-offenders are well documented and studied. There is a struggle to find jobs, housing, and other basic survival resources. Along with this setback, many face challenges with substance abuse, illiteracy, and lack of social and employment skills.
