Faith, a bakery and second chances for ex-gang members
A church in San Salvador opens its doors to men leaving prisons
“Reintegration is nothing more than giving an opportunity to someone who no one else wants to help,” says Pastor Nelson Moz, referring to the ex-gang members his ministry works with. Committed to halting the cycles of violence that plague his church’s community, Pastor Moz started Huellas de Esperanza, a home for men leaving prison who need a place to start.
Creative Associates International’s Crime and Violence Prevention Project offered technical support and sponsored several programs for Huellas de Esperanza. CVPP is a U.S. Agency for International Development-funded project.
