JumpStartLogo-FINAL
Jump Start is committed providing Christian assistance in the areas of preparation, provision, and placement. We work with individuals who are 2 years or less from their max out or parole date.

Preparation will start prior to release by the Department of Corrections with our qualified re-entry program called J.U.M.P. (Just Using Master’s Plan) S.T.A.R.T. (Staying True After Release Time).

Provision will include providing assistance with transitional housing, jobs, and mentoring program for 1 year after release (only for those who have graduated).

Placement will include assisting individuals in the process of buying their first homes after successful completion of 2 years of our inside/outside re-entry program.
