The Inside Out Network is undertaking a broad survey of what’s happening in congregation-based reentry ministry. We’re looking to discover the kinds of ministries congregations are engaged in, what’s working well (and why), and what’s challenging (and why). We’re hoping to discover reproducible models of reentry ministry and pathways that ordinary congregations of various faith traditions can follow. Our goal is to create a practical how-to guide, “Effective Reentry Ministry for Ordinary Congregations,” and to empower more congregations to engage in reentry ministry in a way that fits them.

We'd love to gather information about how your congregation is engaging with people leaving incarceration—whether you're doing a lot or a little. The following survey is intended to be short and quick and should take only about 10-15 minutes to complete.

The Inside Out Network (ION) is a nonprofit working to reshape reentry for people leaving incarceration with our groundbreaking ION online platform that allows returning citizens and service providers to see and be seen and to communicate directly with each other. Think of us as "eharmony for reentry." Our platform empowers men and women to take charge of their reentry experience by seeking and finding the help they both want and need. You can learn more about ION here.

Thanks for your help!
