Leaving prison without a plan will likely result in a return to incarceration. In fact, nearly half of all individuals released from federal prisons are re-arrested within one year of their release. That's why we start by working inside the prison helping them get ready for release so that when they do get out they are much more likely to stay out and succeed.
Navigating the transition back into community is challenging and requires resources that often are not available to those who need it most. We are here to help them find their way to a fresh start.
The volunteers at David's Place are ready, willing and able to walk alongside anyone who wants to succeed outside the wire. David's Place can help you succeed financially, physically, mentally, socially and spiritually.
We offer ongoing support to individuals by providing assistance with housing, utilities, transportation, medical needs, budgeting, employment, training, education, social interactions, recovery support, mental health, church services, Bible studies, and other needs.

As a teen David defeated an entire army by killing a Philistine giant with 5 stones and a slingshot. He was a loyal friend to King Saul’s son Jonathan and he was a great warrior in battle. Because King Saul was jealous of David, David fled to a remote location in the city of Gath. His refuge was so secure that others who were in danger or distress joined him. This is David’s Place. A place of refuge and restoration.
David rose to be King, but was not a perfect person. Like King David, we too are not perfect and require God’s forgiveness. And like King David we too can be restored and move forward as men of God who are providers and protectors; who can connect in community and participate in society; who thrive in the midst of trials and who overcome goliath-sized obstacles.
