Montana Mentoring is a MSUB initiative funded by the Second Chance Act through the United States Department of Justice and is one of ten awards in a national pilot program. The Montana Mentoring Project provides relational support to women transitioning from incarceration to the community. Mentoring helps women build healthy relationships with people committed to the success of their reentry thereby reducing recidivism and the cost of imprisonment to society. With the support from mentors who care, these women become contributing members of the community, reducing crime and increasing public safety.
If you are someone who cares about those struggling to overcome the institutional factors and poor choices of ex-offenders this project could use your experience, compassion and volunteer time.
