In the fall of 2011, CJC in partnership with Oakdale Park Christian Reformed Church launched a new ministry, Community Reentry Fellowship, and is hosting Reentry Networking Lunches. The primary goals of this ministry are:
- To create a place of fellowship for returning citizens and their families during a lunch gathering.
- Develop a connecting point for church folks to know Returning citizens and their struggles.
- Invite social service agency representatives to meet and offer information and resources.
- Offer the opportunity for Mentors to engage with Mentees.
