Community Involvement

Monroe Correctional Complex expands public awareness of the Department of Corrections within the facility through volunteer resources. This partnership encourages supervised interaction between responsible citizens and offenders. Community volunteers provide programs and services that promote positive reintegration into the community. These groups focus on religious, cultural, personal accountability and reentry assistance. Volunteers provide personal and professional expertise in teaching offenders real–life skills necessary to achieve successful transition to community life.

A substantial number of community volunteers offer a variety of social and religious programming opportunities for offenders at Monroe. The facility has two full–time Chaplains to cover the five separate units within the Complex. The facility relies heavily on faith–based volunteers to provide spiritual programming opportunities to offenders of all faiths in accordance to correctional guidelines.
