OTM is a faith-based program that believes returning citizens who have a stable housing environment, a strong support network, access to quality post-release programming, and the capability to search for and acquire employment will successfully re-enter society and prosper.
The heartbeat of OTM services comprises spiritual guidance, education, life skills and soft skills, and mental health counseling. The reentry process includes but is not limited to bible study, our caring staff, random drug testing, housing (3 -12 months), one-on-one counseling, post-release reentry program, bimonthly "Overcomers" sessions, and outpatient substance abuse therapy .
TOOLS NECESSARY TO BECOME LAW ABIDING AND PRODUCTIVE MEMBERS OF SOCIETY
Furthermore, OTM believes that potential achievements of our returning citizens are enhanced when programming includes one-on-one belief therapy counseling, random drug screening, “Overcomers” sessions and Moral Reconation Therapy.
OTM also recognizes the benefits of our reentry housing program will only come to fruition through awareness of the need for the services we provide.

Admission into OTM is a carefully considered process.
