The ARCH Accompaniment Program provides:

1) A practical and spiritual orientation session for parishes and interested members about helping a person who is returning from prison on their journey returning back to the community; 

2) Consultation with volunteers to discuss the various accompaniment programs and identify the one that's right for you;

3) Linkage to a reentry program needing volunteers to assist with mentoring/accompanying - this includes programs that operate inside men and women's prisons, as well as accompaniment that occurs once a person has been released.


If you would like more information about what accompaniment partners we have available or to arrange training at your parish please contact Vanita at If you or a loved one needs assistance upon release to Central Ohio with their reentry needs, please have them fill out and return this form to us.
