Rebuilding Lives through Relationships, Job Training, and Hard Work
Boaz & Ruth is unique in Richmond – and beyond – in its comprehensive approach to the systemic problems of homelessness, joblessness and poverty that afflict both released prisoners and the communities to which they return. Our re-entry training for released prisoners pursues the ultimate purpose of personal empowerment, not merely provision of services. The overarching goal is that persons completing the program will no longer look to society to support them but will look to themselves to support society.
Detachment from conventional society is one of the primary reasons that job-training programs have not produced the positive outcomes for which proponents had hoped. . . . If you come out of prison without a real support system of family and friends, nine out of ten times, you won’t make it.
