It's Just Love
we believe in love & second chances
Mentoring A Touch From Above (MATFA) is a program based on the foundational principle that those who have erred need the intervention of concerned community members to help them restore themselves to become functioning members of society. MATFA takes a grassroots and traditional approach to the needs of offenders and victims alike - because everyone should be given the opportunity of hope and forgiveness. We believe that everyone is capable of being better than their worst moments, and everyone is capable of restoration through the healing and growth necessary to be a full and functioning citizen.
The MATFA Weekend Encounter Sessions have been occurring in various forms for the past 20 years. Our first session will be in Soledad in May. Beyond the institution's security and logistical determinations, there is no set limit to these sessions and we highly encourage participation in our campaigns. We believe the benefits of these experiences are not one-sided. California continues to suffer in the realm of its criminal justice system and we hope that by speaking to and with the offenders we could collectively decrease recidivism and provide second chances to those who need it the most. Please find more information regarding this session below and as always, be blessed.
These wonderful events occur throughout the year, typically on a quarterly basis. Recently, we went to Soledad, CA and had a wonderfully positive experience.
