The Center for Prisoner Renewal (CPR) helps to restore the lives of those that have been incarcerated because of the acts they committed while addicted. CPR establishes relationships with them while they are still in the prison system and begins to educate and prepare them for when they are released into the free world. They provide support on the outside for formerly incarcerated people with shelter, education, mentorship and obtaining employment and aid with transportation to and from employment. They also help with parole and probation requirements and help reestablish family relationships and mentoring. They also enter into the prisons and teach Life Skill Courses, classes that are designed to teach skills needed in the outside world such as maintaining budgets, checking and savings accounts, teaching roles and duties of a husband and father, establishing and maintaining friendships, writing a resume and seeking, finding and keeping employment.
