The ASSOCIATION OF PAROLING AUTHORITIES INTERNATIONAL
(APAI) presented the Old Savannah City Mission its “Community Service
Award” in recognition of its FRESH START PROGRAM. The Mission’s
nomination came from the Georgia Department of Corrections.
|Mission Receives An Award
Fresh Start is a year long residential transitional program with high
standards, strong boundaries and clear direction. It is designed to
serve men and women who while incarcerated come to faith in Christ
and genuinely desire a fresh start in life. The program functions as a
bridge from incarceration to re-incorporation. Its goal is for ex-offenders
and community…never to return to prison. A key factor to the program’s
success is that each ex-offender is assigned a mentor, a life coach.
The Association of Paroling Authorities (APAI) began in the early 1970s
as a group of international colleagues in the field of parole. They
shared a strong interest in discussing best practices and current
issues surrounding early release, reentry into the community and public
safety. For more information on APAI, please visit their website (http:
