The Rock Found is a 501(c)(3) that provides assistance for offenders transitioning back into society. They work one-on-one with their clients, and assist them with everything from housing and food, to developing a resumé and preparing for job interviews.
The Rock Found offers self-developmental programs throughout the week for these men and women: programs which assist them in getting to know themselves, and better understanding how it is they interact with others—also, how to be better men and women, objectively. How to be more virtuous, and develop a worldview & self-image that both supports and thrives upon that progress in virtue.
Working with transitioning offenders can be daunting, but that's mostly just because of the hype. Besides, it's in everyone's best interest: the only alternative to helping these men and women successfully reintegrate into the community, is to keep them locked away forever—and nobody wins in that scenario. To that extent, the Rock Found is always looking to broaden their support network by partnering with individuals and organizations that can assist in its mission. And they always welcome volunteers to facilitate the programs throughout the week—no experience or technical qualifications necessary, just a big heart!
All of the volunteers that I've spoken with didn't quite know what they were getting into when they signed up, but are glad that they took the plunge. It is a constant building and learning experience, not just for the clients, but for the volunteers themselves. If you are interested in growing as a person, and helping along some of the most vulnerable members of society, you should check out the Rock Found. - William
