INFORMATIONAL ORIENTATION SESSION
Saturday, June 23, 2012; 9 a.m. to 12 noon, at St. Paul United Church of Christ, 426 Washington Street, Wausau 54401
Main Presenter at Forum: Barbara Huning, “Circles of Support” Coordinator with AMOS, La Crosse, WI
Enjoy refreshments and learn information about this transformational program and how it works. It’s a way to change lives for the better, while helping the community become stronger, safer, and healthier.
“I want you and the rest of the Circle to know that you are the best thing that has happened to me. I believe that if more lost people had support groups to push them in the right direction, a lot of things would be different for a lot of people.”
Circles of Support Core Member (former inmate)
“Circles of Support” is a program of The Restorative Justice Task Force of AMOS (Advocating, Mobilizing, & Organizing in Solidarity). The Wausau area Treatment Instead of Prison task force (TIP) of NAOMI (North central Area congregations Organized to Make an Impact) is working to learn about “Circles of Support” as a strategy to support individuals released from prison as they reenter life in our communities, and to empower people as they work together to build a more just and healthy society.
