Changing Lives / Healing Communities
A large barrier to successful prisoner release and reintegration back to the community is employment availability, for many released prisoners this results in frustration, stress and eventual re-offending. Many released prisoners are shunned due to their past while others lack the experience or training to find adequate employment.
Dismas Contracting is an employment and training program developed to provide employment and career training to those released prisoners with no employment options upon release. SDPMS is currently partnering with different employers and agencies to provide employment and training opportunities for released prisoners. Our long term plan is to form a not for profit landscaping company that will provide immediate employment and training options for prisoners upon release and become a source of income for the ministry.
