Inside Out Jail Ministries focuses on the rehabilitation and successful re-entry of men and women inside the Orange County Jail. Currently, the Orange County Jail holds roughly 2,300 men and women who are dealing with a past in criminal mischief and looking to transition smoothly into the Orlando Community. These men and women are provided the opportunity to partner with ISO through educational, spiritual as well as program assistance inside of the jail. ISO provides classes to inmates with the tools to make positive decisions, create SMART goals and developing a release plan (24-72 hour plans) upon release from jail.
In this 6-class series, participants learn evidence-based techniques to overcome obstacles related to transitioning back into the community. This includes learning how to make better decisions both inside and outside of jail, make SMART goals, learn how to resist internal and exterior temptations, consider substance programs or transitional programs to assists in possible addictions, how/why to submit to authorities, how to rebuild trust in relationships, address forgiveness/unforgiveness issues and why they are critical to their recovery, prepare for employment, prepare a 24-72 hour plan to follow for their release, receive available community resources, and can request spiritual mentors/pen pals if they desire additional spiritual guidance. (Offered in English and Spanish).
These 3-4 class sessions dig deeper and more intense on areas discussed in ISO 1 such as Employment; Addiction; Goal Setting.
