Description: Securing Emergency Resource Through Volunteer Efforts (SERVE) Incorporated is a community-based nonprofit organization providing a variety of services for individuals and families living in the Prince William, Manassas, and Manassas Park areas of Virginia. Services provided include: a 60-bed homeless shelter, a transitional living program, a food warehouse, an emergency financial assistance program, a thrift shop, and a career development and self-sufficiency program. The mission of the REVIVE (Re-Entry, Vision, Integrity, Values and Effort) Project is to provide a comprehensive approach to transition from incarceration to community living that results in a productive law abiding lifestyle for individuals who have typically not been self-sufficient without engaging in criminal behavior. It is anticipated that developing a relationship with the Life Coach prior to release, and developing goals and objectives, including plans for housing, employment and support services will assist inmates in transitioning to the community without reconnecting to negative peer groups and going back to criminal behaviors. REVIVE will provide individuals with the soft skills, life skills, case management, academic skills, technical skills, residential services and support services needed to be successful in work, family, social, and community life. The REVIVE Project will provide services to 75 individuals over a two-year period. The target population will be non-violent offenders leaving the Prince William Manassas Regional Detention Center who are in need of follow-up services to enable them to live a crime free and self-sufficient lifestyle. Referrals may be made by ADC staff or may be self-referrals. SERVE Incorporated will use the 2005 Congressional Earmark funds to: hire a Senior Life Coach/Project Director, a Life Coach, and an administrative assistant; lease nine (9) two (2) bedroom housing units for 12 months each to provide housing for a minimum of 18 project participants; and, directly assist program participants with educational and training services.
