ASK Mentoring Outreach

 

    Despair, disillusionment, hopelessness, rejection. These are just a few of the negative feelings and emotions that prisoners experience daily. Prisons are a wasteland of human beings who have experienced fractured relationships, abuse and broken dreams.

Our Mission:

 

    "For the recruitment of local volunteers to be trained and monitored for one-on-one visitation with prisoners who have requested a friend because they receive few or no visits from the outside. Ex-offenders are mentored and encouraged through a caring relationship to become productive and useful citizens, resulting in life changing decisions for their future."

 

 

 

 

Proven Results

 

    ASK volunteers are successfully working with the "forgotten" inmates. California Insititution for Women or CIW was asked to obtain the status of approximately 190 ex-offenders who have or are participating in the ASK mentoring program. According to the records of those 190 women; 158 have served their sentences and have since been released. 75 of those 158 women have discharged off parole, while the other 73 are currently on parole and awaiting discharge. Only 10 women have either re-offended or are considered a parolee-at-large. The remaining 32 are still serving their sentences and/or have transferred to other institutions. This equates to a 95% success rate.

 

    The information obtained by CIW shows the overwhelming and evident success of the ASK organization in aiding and facilitating the rehabilitation and successful re-entry of ex-offenders involved in our program.
