Order of Malta

Reentry

In the United States, approximately 65% of previously incarcerated men and women will land back in prison within a three year period. To combat this problem, Prison Ministry in the Order of Malta has programs underway to help the previously incarcerated reenter the “outside world”.

Connecticut — Project Prodigal. A DVD is available to view this program. Click here to view the video.

Florida — Two booklets have been written which advise the previously incarcerated as to services that are available in Florida to aid in reentry.

New Hampshire —  The Dismas Home of New Hampshire is an independent temporary (about six months) transitional living facility that provides housing and transition services for up to eight women in a supportive environment. Dismas Home offers a structured framework that will help to facilitate community reentry for these women following incarceration. Members of the Order serve on the Board of Directors and Advisory Board; the Order, as well as these Members, have supported the program financially as it is carrying out one aspect of the Apostolate’s Strategic Plan – providing structure caring reentry assistance.
