Immersion: A Point of Re-entry

This program serves returning citizens in need of critical supportive wrap-around services and provides access to SVdP resources available throughout the United States. Grounded in Catholic Social Teaching, the Immersion program works in systemic change initiatives to end poverty by focusing on assisting our returning citizen brothers and sisters in Christ, and their families.
