Spiritus Christi Prison Outreach
With housing as its foundation, Spiritus Christi Prison Outreach is a premier choice for re-entry programming in Monroe County. Believing in the inherent goodness of every person and the impact of belonging, SCPO empowers justice-involved and homeless individuals through stable housing, life skills, connections to treatment services, and a supportive community. The organization strives for liberation from racism and discrimination, especially for those disproportionately represented in the criminal justice system, including Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color, the LGBTQ+ community, and those affected by mental illness and/or substance use disorders. People from diverse religious backgrounds are welcomed, and their expressions of faith are respected. Within SCPO, individuals discover a safe haven in warm and restorative communities, experiencing the healing and empowerment needed to confidently take their next step. SCPO employs evidence-based practices to support individual transformations, breaking cycles of incarceration, estrangement, and addiction. Through community collaborations with advocacy groups, elected officials, the criminal justice system, prisons, jails, healthcare providers, mental health professionals, and neighborhoods in the Greater Rochester Area, SCPO demonstrates the effectiveness of alternatives to incarceration. The organization aims to strengthen families and address the root causes of poverty and trauma. SCPO is dedicated to building a healthy, safe, and equitable community, where everyone has abundant opportunities for a fulfilling life.
