mission/vision/core values

Our mission is to provide reentry services beneficial to citizens returning to our communities, thereby enabling them to successfully write the remaining chapters of their life stories.
Reentry Overview
City of Faith has quietly branched out from roots in Monroe to nestle in other Louisiana and Arkansas communities. For over three decades, they have helped:
  • support local economies
  • reduce taxpayer liability
  • increase community stability
Over 10,000 residents have now completed our programs. Of those, nearly 85% have gone on to lead meaningful, productive lives. Still, City of Faith is more about stories than statistics, more about experience than expertise.
We realize that life is a journey, and that everyone basically wants the same thing: to be recognized, to be cared for, and to have an opportunity to grow.
At City of Faith, we understand that the front line drives the bottom line, that rights should be linked to responsibilities, and that ultimately, the only choice is choice.
City of Faith is contracted with the Federal Bureau of Prisons to operate reentry programs for inmates servings the final phases of their sentences.
Placement of residents for reentry services is determined by statutory and regulatory criteria. Recommendations are submitted by classification officers and case managers. City of Faith does not solicit resident placement.
Inmates within two years of their release date or six months prior to their parole date eligibility may be considered for reentry services. In general, convictions of violent or drug distribution crimes are restricted to no more than six months in the program. Sexually related offenses are not considered for halfway house placement.
Programs at City of Faith include:
  • Substance abuse counseling
  • Education and life skills training
  • Job development
  • Personal counseling and family intervention
  • Employment and housing assistance
  • Faith-based programs
Specific questions concerning eligibility should be addressed at their current institution.

I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you about the 4 Core Values we hold here at City of Faith.  These core values should be reviewed frequently to keep us focused on our original vision and to remind all of us of what is expected as individual employees as well as a company as a whole.
DEDICATED:  When we think of this word, many attributes to come to mind.  City of Faith employees should be dedicated to their responsibilities, the residents and each other.  We should be stable individuals who are organized, diligent and passionate about the mission as well as committed to it. Loyal, task-oriented people who are self-starters and display a good work ethic.
ACCOUNTABLE:  An accountable employee is one who displays honesty, integrity and follows not only the letter of company policy but the spirit as well.
TEAM PLAYER:  City of Faith employees should show some aspects of leadership, involve oneself in company functions where decisions are made and goals are set. Communication is paramount and employees are expected to communicate their issues with their supervisor with little drama.
COMPASSIONATE:  City of Faith employees should treat each other and our residents in the same manner we want to be treated.  We should be respectful and kind to each other and be considerate of the paths and stories of those whose paths we cross.
