O4C brings together program staff, community volunteers, and men preparing to leave prison(and recently released) in a collaborative group setting, providing support and encouragement during their transition back to the community Research shows that community mentoring programs reduce recidivism. OC4 is very proud of Norma Ziegler’s role during her time as the Amicus O4C Program Coordinator.
