mission/vision

Mission
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.
Vision
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 and the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections 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, case managers, and the Parole Board. 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.
