Accompaiment

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 vnevis@svdpcolumbus.org. 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.
