Reentry Programs

Volunteers of America offers programs that help previously incarcerated adults rebuild their lives and make a positive change.

Step By Step

We help women regain their confidence...Step by Step

The Step by Step program offers workshops that help women regain their self-worth and make significant changes as they transition back into our communities when they are released from prison. The program helps women re-claim their lives and build healthy relationships with their families, friends and others who can have a positive impact in their lives. Step by Step is offered at the Albion State and Monroe County Correctional Facilities for more than 500 women each year.

Men's Employment Counseling and Advocacy (MECA)

We offer support to men that want to make a positive change in their lives

The MECA program offers support to men aged 18 to 50 years old who are involved in county probation or treatment court and want to make a positive change in their lives. The program provides counseling, employment assistance, connections to community resources, and assistance with basic needs. With our support, the men can rebuild relationships with family and friends and change their paths before ending up incarcerated long term.
