The ARCH Accompaniment Program provides:
1) A practical and spiritual orientation session about helping a person who is returning from prison on their journey returning back to the community;
2) Consultation with volunteer to discuss the various accompaniment programs and identify the one that's right for you, and
3) Linkage to a reentry program needing volunteers to assist with mentoring/accompanying.
Note: ARCH volunteers will not be expected to help someone directly with money, housing or jobs. Volunteers will be providing more moral and spiritual support - a listening ear and a safe person. In some cases, those accompanying may help link an individual to service agencies or reentry resources in the community.
