St. Leonard's Ministries
Believing individuals want to lead productive and whole lives, St. Leonard’s Ministries provides a setting in which men and women recently released from prison can achieve such a life. Residents are provided with an array of program services designed to assist them as they make the transition to successful, independent living. St. Leonard’s Ministries developed the Michael Barlow Center to provide education, training, and job placement services for formerly incarcerated men and women. This three-story facility opened its doors in March 2005. The ADA compliant building includes six classrooms and three meeting rooms. Classrooms include a completely equipped commercial kitchen and an 18-station computer lab with internet access. The Center staff includes a job developer and a retention counselor. Education and training opportunities are provided through collaboration with a variety of community partners.
