CITIZEN CIRCLE

WHY CIRCLES EXIST

Citizen Circle exists to establish a spiritual faith-based supportive community to help re-acclimate participating ex-offenders into the community by educating, mentoring, exhorting, and providing supportive resource programs geared toward creating strong healthy PRODUCTIVE CITIZENS.

 CIRCLES ARE...“A Community Response to Meeting the Need

Citizen Circles are a group of community members committed to helping offenders make the change from “offender” to “Citizen”.

Citizen Circles create partnerships that promote social interaction and accountability to help offenders become productive citizens.

Citizen Circle offenders, and their families develop relationships with community members and jointly develop a plan to help the offender become a productive citizen.

Citizen Circles communicate to offenders the belief that their debt has been paid and the community is willing to accept them as a restored citizen.

Citizen Circles provide the opportunity for developing partnerships, making a difference in an offender’s behavior while promoting community safety.

 

Citizen Circles Focus on Eight Dynamic Domain Areas:

  1. Employment - Work and the role of work in the person's life, including education and vocational skills;
  2. Education - Education and vocational skills desired;
  3. Family/Marital - Being with family members and the support an offender derives from them;
  4. Associates/Social Interactions - Positive interaction with community members and non-criminal associates with the opportunity for positive interaction with peers;
  5. Substance Abuse - Living without reliance on alcohol and/or other drugs;
  6. Community Functioning - Knowledge and skills for daily living, including safety, an acceptable place to live, health, personal budgeting, leisure activities, and the use of social services;
  7. Personal/Emotional Orientation - Decision-making, coping with stress, and practicing mental health and wellness activities.
  8. Attitude - Supporting law-abiding behaviors and involvement with religious activities.
