Jennie Amison - Executive Director, Gemeinschaft
By Martha Woodroof
Harrisonburg, VA – Harrisonburg's Gemeinschaft Home, a transitional community for ex-offenders, has helped some 2100 newly released or paroled prisoners get a job and a fresh start.
If the announced state budget cuts hold, Gemeinschaft will be defunded.
Jennie Amison, herself a recovering addict and alcoholic, was a transition specialist at Indian Creek Correctional Center when she was recruited to become Gemeinschaft's Executive Director.
