~ Willing to identify a point of contact for returning citizen to meet at the church. ~ Provides returning citizen with welcome packet or list of ministry services.
~ Offer information/available resources i.e. food shelf, support groups etc.
~ Be friendly/welcoming i.e. introduce returning citizen to 2 – 3 people at the church.
