In the list of excellent St Louis organizations we must include The Criminal Justice Ministry. Originally part of St Binvent DePaul and now independent, the organization provides a. Ariety if services forbprisoners and ex-offenders.
The Release to Rent Program provides assisted housing and extensive supportive services for ex offenders. The recidivism rate for this program is less than 10%, significantly better than the overall rate. I helped this program get started. The founder, Sister Carlene Reck has retired but the great work continues. Written by Paul Dribin
