Become A Mentor
One Step at a Time (OSAT) Mentoring Program
Do you believe that “Everyone Deserves a Second Chance?” At Old Pueblo Community Services, WE DO. Experience has taught us that men and women returning to the community from prison are much less likely to return to drugs, alcohol and/or crime if they have strong support. In fact, people who have a mentor when they get out of prison are three times less likely to go back to prison.
- Make a difference in someone’s life.
- Help someone achieve their goals and succeed in the community.
- Help someone find their self-esteem and motivate them to succeed.
- Help lower the recidivism rate and increase public safety.
- Give back to the community by helping a person transition successfully out of prison, One Step at a Time.
