New HOPE by effective collaboration

HOPE (Helping Open People’s Eyes), a faith-based pre- and post-release rehabilitation program sponsored by the Chaplain’s office at Pennsylvania’s Allegheny County Jail, was created in 2002 for minimum and medium security male inmates serving from 11 to 23 months. This program works in collaboration with community service providers and volunteers, mostly from churches, who can serve as mentors, instructors, and Bible study leaders. Most participants are serving sentences for misdemeanors or felonies committed to support a drug or alcohol habit.
