The Midland Community Former Offenders Advocacy and Rehabilitation program has received a $19,436 grant from the Midland Area Community Foundation.

Rob Worsley, program director of MCFOAR, said the grant will fund two new programs: Alternatives to Violence and Character First.

Alternatives to Violence seeks to change the behavior of domestic assault offenders. In the past, it was operated by Shelterhouse. Character First involves 49 character qualities that are focused on reducing risk behaviors of former offenders.

MCFOAR, which partners with the Caregiving Network, assists former prisoners with obtaining housing, employment and other basic needs.

Worsley can be reached at (989) 832-8533.
