Criminal Justice Ministry Services VISTA - Summer Associate
The Services Summer Associate VISTA will assist Criminal Justice Ministry’s FIRST Services Department with daily operations and capacity building. The FIRST Services Department serves clients who have recently been released from periods of incarceration and provides them with a number of resources including transportation assistance, hygiene items, undergarments, work boots, medical assistance, and vital paper documentation. The VISTA will assist in this work by meeting directly with clients, inputting client data, and researching best practices for the department to better serve the client population. As a result of the VISTA member’s service, CJM will be able to meet the needs of more clients and alleviate poverty and other barriers.
Criminal Justice Ministry’s mission is to improve our communities by supporting and empowering those impacted by incarceration. CJM envisions a future for those impacted by incarceration where their relationships and communities are safe and supportive, incarceration is minimized, and recidivism is eliminated.
