Filthy Rags Outreach holds peer group meetings “Breaking the Chains and Bridging the Gap” where we actively create an atmosphere for healing, and challenge the criminal and gang mentality through exposing its false realities, lies, and the illusions we all bought into.
Our meetings are lead and facilitated by core members who know what it's like to be in the participants’ shoes and have first-hand knowledge, experience, and insight into the challenges they'll face in transitioning from the conditionings of the street life toward positive living and a lifestyle of faith.
Filthy Rags Outreach is teaming up with The Emperor's Group to provide professional job readiness and training workshops to those releasing to the Seattle area from our state's prison system.
This 5- part workshop is designed for team members of all levels. We explore how attitudes and stereotypes impact decisions, foster resentments and how our interactions influence one another. By the end of this workshop, participants will be provided with evidence-based tools and strategies to help mitigate racism, microaggression, to form a more inclusive culture in the workplace and throughout all aspects of their lives.
We have partnered with "Being a Friend Ministries" to provide transitional housing for men (and eventually women) coming out of prison. Our 1st transitional housing program opened on November 1st, 2021 with 6 beds, and we plan to open & offer more transitional housing options in the future.
