The CHOICE Program
Fishers of Men Program, the flagship initiative of Wellspring Second Chance Center, was developed as a faith-based re-entry program that will shepherd community resources and provide programming and services expertise in the area of improving the lives of ex-offenders.
The goal of our agency is to enhance the lives of YOUTH / ADULT ex-offenders (program participants) so that they may re-enter society as law-abiding, productive, and responsible citizens.
We provide culturally sensitive, trauma-informed programming while encouraging self-regulation and reliance. We use two-way relationship groups, individual counseling, self-esteem building, conflict management, college preparatory curriculum, Counting Your Blessings-Theory Based Curriculum, restorative justice, and cooperation with corporations while contributing to a safer community.
Our services address criminogenic risks and needs of the youth such as life skills and mood management.
Your giving of $100.00 provides one youth an opportunity to participate in our EWCP Program, which is a work-based learning program, receive academic credits towards graduating, and financial and computer literacy. This program promotes efforts to cultivate diversity and inclusion in our community-based program that advances opportunities for diverse populations involved that normally would be involved in gun violence and/or crimes. Your funds help us provide youth with uniforms to work and transportation to work sites.
Your giving of $100.00 provides one youth to receive a nutritional meal and participate in our eleven-week CHOICE Program. An intensive intervention program that addresses hopelessness and acting out through violence or acting desperately addresses their deficiencies and replaces them with a strong sense of self and confidence, which empowers them and prevents them from being court-ordered in a youth correctional facility.
Upon entering the program, either before or after leaving the correctional facility, participants undergo a customized intake process to determine their goals and objectives to complete in order that they may have a smooth transition and a successful healthy life after incarceration as a new person).
Many of our youth have gone to attend two and four-year colleges and universities upon participating in one of our programs. Your dollars help support our efforts in helping them achieve those goals.
We believe if we change a man’s heart, you can change his ways, thus transforming lives, reducing intergenerational incarceration, restoring and strengthening families, interrupting the prison pipeline of our youth, assisting individuals to re-enter society as law-abiding, productive, and responsible citizens while contributing to a safer Minnesota.
