Our next Special Offering will be taken on January 11 for the Kalamazoo Drug Treatment Court Program which diverts nonviolent felons with substance abuse problems from incarceration and gives them an opportunity to repair their lives and choose treatment over jail or prison. Participants comply with requirements such as attending bi-weekly court sessions, submitting to random drug testing, and reporting to program staff. The program saves taxpayers thousands of dollars annually and returns productive and healthy citizens back to society. Eighty-five percent of Drug Treatment Court graduates are successful and do not re-enter the court system.
Thanks to everyone who gave to the Special Collection on December 14. We were able to raise $1318.79 to support the work of Ministry with Community.
