Grants of up to $25,000 per year to Illinois and Indiana community agencies for new or established prison mentorship programs in the Wabash Valley. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to applying. Funding is intended to develop, expand, or sustain quality jail mentorship programs, with a focus on substance use and an aim to support and prepare inmates for sobriety and reentry into society. Eligible areas are Clay, Parke, Sullivan, Vermillion and Vigo Counties in Indiana and Clark County in Illinois.
The program will impact low-income populations by investing in efforts intended to reduce the number of substance-use-disorder-related arrest records, substance use-disorder-related Department of Child Services removal records, as well as measurement of key family statistics related to youth substance use provided by the Indiana Youth Survey.
The UWWV SUD believes that growth in evidence-based jail mentorship programs will positively impact these measurements. Substance use jail mentoring programs help reduce inmate costs by teaching, coaching, and supporting those incarcerated so that the risk of recidivism is reduced. Mentoring is often thought to provide prosocial benefits, including access to a reliable listener and association with someone who is outside of one’s existing social network. These programs help some of the most vulnerable citizens—individuals who have severe and persistent mental illness and substance use disorders as well as criminal records— with the necessary supports for success in reentry.
The Substance Use Disorders Council will measure contributing outcomes of Wabash Valley wide substance use-related arrests and Department of Child Services substance use-related child removal cases. To contribute to success in these outcomes, this grant is requiring accomplishment of one of the following outputs:
