Sponsors is an organization in Eugene that gives support to men and women recently incarcerated to obtain housing and work so that former prisoners might be fully integrated back into the community.
Sponsors provide transitional housing, even housing for women with children. They have a reentry center, where those coming out of jail can find all the resources needed to find employment. They also provide pro bono legal help, especially for those who wish to have their records expunged.
Eugene Mennonite believes that everyone deserves another chance and are enthusiastic about the work of Sponsors. We have provided a matching grant with Everance, providing a total of a thousand dollars to their work in 2018.
If anyone would like to donate, provide resources, volunteer at Sponsors, or to be a local second-chance employer, please check out their site at sponsorsinc.org
