WELCOME TO THE LIGHTHOUSE FOR RECOVERY'S
PRISON RE-ENTRY PROGRAM
Our objective is to assist you along your
path of recovery. We cannot change you,
and we are not about forcing people to
change. But, we can help you along your journey to figure out the best way to
get to where you want to be with your life.
We provide resources to the State of Alabama and Federal inmates for:
- Securing a home plan -in our transitional housing programs.
- Secure a job plan.
- Provide other resources needed when the inmate is approved for parole and returns to the county of their choice to reside.
Lighthouse for Recovery goes far above and beyond the term "Half-Way" in
proving that half-way is not good enough and "complete" is the goal to
believe that every man or woman regardless of their criminal history or
background can change. We believe that a number of factors contribute
to the mind set and mentality of the individual and we have a unique way
of leading them to discover their beliefs and behaviors that no longer
serve them in their lives. We are committed to identifying what the
individual needs and assisting them in becoming productive and
responsible members of society.

Transitional services help people about to be released from prison or jail prepare for their transition back into society, and support recently released individuals to reintegrate successfully into their communities.
Transitioning away from incarceration is a particularly challenging and disorienting process. Many of the building blocks of independent living are not yet in place, resulting in big, seemingly insurmountable questions: “Where do I live?”, “Where is my next meal coming from?” “How do I get a job to pay for any of this?” The Lighthouse for Recovery Ministries' transitional services help clients navigate these complicated issues.
This program is designed to assist offenders in preparing for and accomplishing a successful return to the community. Operating statewide, the Lighthouse for Recovery Ministries has developed liaisons with service providers in the community and is able to provide on-going assistance in locating and accessing resources responsive to the needs, including food, shelter, clothing, education, medical services, as well as emotional support and encouragement.
Staff begin working with clients while they are incarcerated so that support systems are in place upon release. Clients request admission to the program through their institutional counselor.
The Lighthouse for Recovery Ministries pre-release staff provides meaningful social services, support, and intervention to prisoners. We are a direct channel for communication between inmates and their attorneys, families, employers, social service and treatment providers, and other elements of the criminal justice system.
