A PEACEFUL HABITATION & AFTERCAREMINISTRY
May 27, 2010

I have been involved with mentoring the ladies at APH (A Peaceful Habitation) for over two years. I have gotten to know many of the X-prisoners quite well, and I am impressed with how well they have done as a result of living at this facility. Weekly Bible studies, Daily Devotions, and Life Skills are just a few of the things they learn there. Each lady must live at APH for a minimum of six months. Many ladies who have completed their time at APH are finding ways to legally make it on their own, without drugs!! Most have been able to reestablish relationships with their families, and many of them are going to school so that they can get better paying jobs. For every lady who doesn't end up going back to prison, APH saves the state and federal government a lot of money, and the success rate at APH is quite impressive. APH works very hard at being a "hand-up" and not a "hand-out" organization. It is a joy to be a volunteer at such a well-run nonprofit organization.

The Great!

I have personally experienced the results of this organization because I have established lasting friendships with other mentors as well as with X-prisoners. Mentors meet at least once a week with each lady and monthly with other mentors.
