The Home For Good In Oregon Mentor Training will be hosted at the Morning Star Community Church in Salem on April 27th. In 2019, all CR leadership is encouraged to take the Home for Good in Oregon training developed by the Oregon Department of Corrections, Religious Services Division. This training is important, to better prepare us to assist a re-entering man or woman coming into our community CR groups. An inmates changed life, started by attending the correctional CR group in a well structured environment, is severely challenged upon their release to an unstructured environment. The reality of life on the ‘outside’ introduces new challenges related to routine activities they have not experienced for some time. This is where our Celebrate Recovery group should shine like a light for them! We’ve attached a flyer for the HGO training, please note the instructions on the flyer.
