When someone is charged with an offence and remanded into custody, they come from the community, and the majority of prisoners ultimately return to the community on release. VACRO’s work is based on a belief that the community has a responsibility to provide support to offenders and their families - to assist them to face the issues that confront them during arrest, imprisonment and upon release.
VACRO adopts a throughcare approach; working with individuals, families and communities at the time of arrest, through court, in the prison system and as they transition safely back into community life (dependent on funding)

Recommended Reading: Facing the Fifties: Denial to Reflection
by Dr Peter O'Connor,
The decade between fifty and sixty is uncharted territory, a phase of life that is largely ignored. Yet for many people it's a time of turbulent change as they face the loss of youthfulness, menopause, perhaps redundancy, retirement, a new role as children leave home, and the decline or death of their parents.
Dr Peter O'Connor, who previously examined the mid-life years in Understanding the Mid-Life Crisis, now explores the meaning of the fifties transition. He draws on interviews with men and women in their fifties as well as his wide experience as a psychologist to redefine this vital stage, which can be as potent as adolescence. Facing the fifties suggests a rite of passage that allows us to mourn what is lost and celebrate new possibilities as we grow older. Thoughtful, challenging, and sometimes controversial, it offers a map for the journey towards a renewed sense of self, and a valued place in society.
Recommended Reading: Immortal Diamond: The Search for Our True Self
by Richard Rohr
Dissolve the distractions of ego to find our authentic selves.
In his bestselling book Falling Upward, Richard Rohr talked about ego (or the False Self) and how it gets in the way of spiritual maturity. But if there's a False Self, is there also a True Self? What is it? How is it found? Why does it matter? And what does it have to do with the spiritual journey?
This book likens True Self to a diamond, buried deep within us, formed under the intense pressure of our lives, that must be searched for, uncovered, separated from all the debris of ego that surrounds it.
