The Community Reintegration Program offers mentally ill offenders treatment as an alternative to incarceration. CRP is designed to identify and divert offenders with mental health issues from incarceration to treatment. A psychologist from the Magistrate’s office screens individuals for mental illness; if detected, the accused person is released on bond by the judge, on condition that the person participates in mental health treatment. The Center’s CRP case managers partner with participants to help them earn and successfully complete probation in lieu of incarceration.

Living Water Faith Church (LWFC) has an opportunity to minister to parolees three times a week and one of their needs is food. Many parolees have very little money and no food. LWFC has partnered with Daily Bread Ministries who provide food free-of-charge. Each week with their own funds, LWFC purchases chicken, beef and pork franks to supplement what they get from food banks. The San Antonio Metro District Parole Office has more than 1,000 parolees who have to report each month and over 40 parolees and their families are receiving food from LWFC.

In addition to parolees, LWFC provides food to the community surrounding the church, where they find the elderly and single mothers who support on average four children who also desperately need food assistance. Pastor Lucio uses this opportunity to minister to them God's message of redemption and hope. Some are now attending LWFC services and have expressed gratitude and a renewed relationship with God.

Free.

Program dates and times vary, please call for the latest updates.

Living Water Faith Church (LWFC) has been volunteering and providing Christian faith-based support to the men and women who are currently on parole. Since November 2009, LWFC has conducted weekly group counseling at the San Antonio Parole Offices on Guadalupe Street and at the office on N.E. Loop 410.

LWFC teaches from a biblical and spiritual perspective regarding the different areas of their lives. The classes have an impact not only on the parolee, but significant others in the community. The subject matter include authority, attitudes, encouragement, and recognition that there is Hope for each individual who will be still long enough to allow God to help him/her.

Our classes are numbering approximately 25 to 40 men and women. The people who attend the groups are given credit towards their conditions of parole which require them to attend a support group on a weekly basis. We encourage parolees to attend a bible-believing church weekly, accompanied by their family.

Please call us for more information on our support groups for parolees.

Crosspoint provides a structured residential environment for individuals referred by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the U.S. Probation Office or U.S. Pretrial Services.

Accountability is the foundation for this service model. Residents are held accountable for their behavior and progress throughout the program while staff is accountable for adhering to procedures that promote public safety. Every resident undergoes assessment and individualized program planning. After a short in-house orientation period the resident receives additional privileges which allow him/her to become further integrated into the community.

Measures of program progress include:

  • obtaining employment
  • development of a realistic budget
  • improving family and community support systems
  • remaining drug and alcohol-free
  • development of a stable residential plan

The Crosspoint experience helps reduce recidivism and the attendant societal and economic costs by utilizing integrated, evidence-based services.

Crosspoint strives to forge the essential alliance between criminal justice supervision, community service providers and other community stakeholders to provide our clients with the resources and guidance necessary to lead productive lives and achieve restoration of citizenship.

Restoration of the individual, the family and the community at large is paramount and Crosspoint allows for individual restoration through community service projects, faith-based services, structured programming and supportive relationship with our staff.

Kairos Outside is designed to support the families of men, women, and youth who are, or have been incarcerated in the country’s state and federal correctional facilities.

KO can help bolster the loved ones who are supporting those incarcerated persons. We believe that the families of the incarcerated are “doing time” right along with their loved ones. Kairos Outside is intended to let those families know that there is a community that cares about them and their needs.

We provide a safe place for women to share with each other, and with those who are empathetic to their situation, their struggles and concerns. The women on the outside, in many ways, have to be stronger than their relative(s) on the inside to survive in today’s world.

We hope Kairos Outside will help them find strength for their life journey and give them a chance to find and build relationships that may last a lifetime.

Must apply to attend.

No cost to guests. Donations accepted.
