Abe Brown Ministries has earned the trust of our clients and the community since 1977.
In 2014, ABM launched a comprehensive reentry program designed to inspire and develop (personally & professionally) citizens with lived incarceration experiences by equipping them with marketable skills and assisting them in securing gainful employment in order to achieve self-sufficiency. ABM’s Reentry+ program accomplishes this by providing comprehensive interventions that stabilize the lives of our clients so that they can focus on sobriety, good health, training, and personal growth.
Clients are formerly incarcerated persons who are not habitual violent offenders, do not have any sexual offenses, and must undergo a complete background screening prior to acceptance into the program. Upon acceptance, participants are required to attend a comprehensive six-week professional development training course, featuring employability and life management skills. Additionally, participants are paired with a case manager who provides guidance and support, as well as referrals for community assistance, life-coaching and follow-up drug screening.
